Abstract

Reef canopies are complex and extremely variable across a range of spatial scales. This variability affects the velocity above as well as within the canopy, and directly impacts the transport of sediment along the bed as well as suspended in the water column. How a canopy affects the transport of sediment is important to understand and predict changes in the position of the adjacent shoreline, particularly as reefs change. In this study, high-resolution seabed complexity models derived from photogrammetry for low roughness and high roughness canopy sites at Moloka’i (Hawai’i) are combined with direct field measurements and three-dimensional numerical modelling to investigate these canopy and sub-canopy impacts on velocity and sediment transport.
