Figure 30, transport processes at an inlet.
Figure 30. A, Morphologic features (yellow arrows) at the Pensacola Inlet, Fla., that interact with the tidal flow (pink arrows—solid arrows indicate flood tide flows and dashed arrows indicate ebb tide flows). B, Modeled inlet flow speeds and C, 2.5-centimeter surface residual ball (SRB) mobility for low threshold calculations during flood tide with moderately large waves (scenario H4_D7; fig. 2). Areas where the mobility ratio is 1 (in pink) indicate that SRB mobility threshold is exceeded.
