  "description": "<p>A laboratory experiment was conducted to investigate the dynamics of cross-shore sediment transport across a<br>\nfringing coral reef. The aim was to quantify how a highly bimodal spectrum of high-frequency (sea-swell) and<br>\nlow-frequency (infragravity and seiching) waves that is typically present on coral reef flats, influences the<br>\nvarious sediment transport mechanisms. The experiments were conducted in a 55 m wave flume, using a 1:15<br>\nscale fringing reefmodel that had a 1:5 forereef slope, a 14 m long reef flat, and a 1:12 sloping beach. The initial<br>\n7 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<br>\nseven-hour irregular wave cases were conducted both with and without bottom roughness elements (schematically<br>\nrepresenting bottom friction by coral roughness), as well as for both low and high still water levels.</p>\n\n<p>More information about this experiment is available in the methods of the associated publication (http://doi.org/10.1016/j.coastaleng.2015.01.005).</p>",
