The swash-zone is a highly dynamic area with large sediment fluxes within a shallow, transient water layer. Connecting the surf zone to the beach, the swash is a relevant area for coastal morphology. Obtaining high-quality measurements in the swash has been proven challenging. Therefore, the complex physical processes driving sediment transport in the swash are poorly understood. We present results of recent large-scale wave-flume experiments, focusing on sheet-flow sediment transport in the swash zone.
