Wave-mud interaction is investigated via laboratory experiments and numerical modeling. We concurrently measure the free-surface elevation, boundary layer velocities, and rheology, which allows us to reveal the viscosity response of fluid mud under different wave loadings. The commonly adopted constant viscosity assumption is evaluated via linear and nonlinear wave-mud interaction models. Finally, the applicability of Newtonian rheology is evaluated.
