Abstract

A field observation, comprising bottom mounted instruments for near-bottom currents and suspended sediment concentrations, was carried out for 1-month at the Tama River mouth in Tokyo Bay. The measurements have captured sediment resuspension during extreme wave conditions during a passage of typhoon near the study site in the early September of 2007. The sediment resuspension occurred by waves and current and combined current-wave induced bottom shear stress reached 0.3 Pa. Based on the SS-flux analysis during the monitoring deployment, the net suspended sediment transport at the site was towards the south west or outer Tokyo Bay.
