Hello, I'm new to ROMS, and I want to run a configuration with sediment, but when I activate the sediment model the speed of the current increase significantly. What can produce this effect over the current?. How the model asume the sediment bed thick? Above the bathymetry?
Thanks in Advance

it might be the bottom roughness is using the grain size and that is creating a smaller stress.
we have some test cases like lake_signell or test_head that might be of help to get things set up.
