BARDEX II (Barrier Dynamics Experiment) is a research projected funded by the European Union and takes place in the Delta Flume in the Netherlands from May to July. The overall aim of the project is to increase our understanding of sediment transport processes on sandy beaches. The project is hosted by Deltares and 25 researchers from 9 different universities (Algarve, Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Delaware, New Hampshire, New South Wales, Plymouth, Southampton, Utrecht) are involved.

Electro-magnetic current meters
The Delta Flume staff have finished wall mounting the electro-magnetic current meters. Three vertical arrays of current meters at 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5 m from the bed have been installed to span the surf zone and a single current meter mounted at 0.25 m from the bed will be used to record 'offshore' current velocities.
