Short summary
The powerful jets of currents induced by vessels' propellers in ports often cause areas of erosion and deposition, strongly impacting the port's operability. The capacity to fully understand and predict these complex dynamics would be a fundamental help for port operators in order to optimize and efficiently plan port management and seabed maintenance. In the present work, we show how this is possible using high-resolution modeling of hydrodynamics and sediment transport.
