Project IC24 - Initiation of motion – marine biological factors controlling sediment stability

The erodibility of marine, coastal sediments is controlled by the hydro-dynamical drivers and sedimentological settings, e.g. mineralogy, grain size distribution and density. In addition, biological factors, e.g. bioturbation, effects of biological cover, etc., play an important role on the re-mobilization behaviour of natural substrates. However, a quantification of stabilizing vs. destabilizing biological processes to sediment stability is largely lacking.
To gain a deeper insight how sediment stability and hence, the coastal ecosystem, changes due to biological factors, we will combine lab flume tank experiments with 3D numerical models (coupling: a Discrete Element and a Finite Difference approach) with high resolution in situ measurements. A better understanding of these micro-scale processes at the fluid-sediment interface will enable a better far-seeing marine environmental planning.
