    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;A laboratory experiment was conducted to investigate the dynamics of cross-shore sediment transport across a&lt;br&gt;
fringing coral reef. The aim was to quantify how a highly bimodal spectrum of high-frequency (sea-swell) and&lt;br&gt;
low-frequency (infragravity and seiching) waves that is typically present on coral reef flats, influences the&lt;br&gt;
various sediment transport mechanisms. The experiments were conducted in a 55 m wave flume, using a 1:15&lt;br&gt;
scale fringing reefmodel that had a 1:5 forereef slope, a 14 m long reef flat, and a 1:12 sloping beach. The initial&lt;br&gt;
7 m of reef flat had a fixed bed, whereas the back 7 m of the reef and the beach had a moveable sandy bed. Four&lt;br&gt;
seven-hour irregular wave cases were conducted both with and without bottom roughness elements (schematically&lt;br&gt;
representing bottom friction by coral roughness), as well as for both low and high still water levels.&lt;/p&gt;
