Surfs up, and so is the sand!

How does the ocean swell affect the movement of sediment on the seafloor in Monterey Bay? To answer this, just board the 135-foot Research Vessel (R/V) Point Sur and join students Casey Clark and Kristen Meagher of the MLML Physical Oceanography class.  They are using wave height and seafloor maps to speculating on how wave intensity influences sediment movement in Monterey Bay.
