Unformatted text preview: • can mine burial be meaningful predicted based on principles of scour processes? • type 1: % burial by depth • type 2: % surface area burial Conclusions: • relationships for scour of pipes and pilings can be used to model mine burial • mine burial can be predicted and forecast using available global wave models • model limitations include wave forecast accuracy and scour pit backfilling • scour models apply best in fine sand • in coarse sand, scour behavior is distinct, bed forms play critical limiting role in burial • an interactive scour burial model for field sites is available on the web Clicker Questions: 1. The process by which fluid flow is accelerated around an object causing the local removal of sediment and gradual setting o the object into the seabed is called scour...
