New experiments of sand transport under sheet flow conditions were carried out in the Large Oscillating Water Tunnel (LOWT) of Deltares. In this work the measured net sediment transport rates, the structure of the sheet flow layer and sediment flux vertical profiles along the oscillatory wave cycle are presented and the importance of acceleration skewness on the sediment transport processes is analyzed and discussed.
