Paper Abstract

Naïve Bayesian belief network modeling is applied to direct numerically simulated imagery of oscillatory sedimentladen flow to illustrate the feasibility of creating a system model which captures the statistical interrelationship of the surface layer sediment concentration, pressure, and vertical velocity eddy scales with the sub-surface Reynolds stress. From a prognostic reasoning viewpoint, preliminary model results suggest that large sediment concentration eddy scales may result from the application of large positive Reynolds stress. However, from a diagnostic reasoning viewpoint, initial results suggest that robustly inferring sub-surface boundary layer stress from surface sediment concentration eddy scales may be a difficult task. The model formulism used allows for the ability to statistically characterize flow structure at depth from observations taken across a surface boundary layer, making the results relevant to image analysis at the airsea interfacial boundary layer in large-scale coastal and riverine systems.
