    The coupling between topography, waves and currents in the surf zone may self-organize to produce the formation of shore-transverse or shore-oblique sand bars on an otherwise alongshore uniform beach. In the absence of ...

    The SW coast of Africa (Namibia and part of Angola) features very long sandy beaches and a wave climate dominated by energetic swells from the SSW, therefore approaching the coast with a very high obliquity. Satellite ...
  • Potential instabilities of Catalan coastline induced by high-angle waves 

    Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel; Falqués Serra, Albert; Van den Berg, Niels (2011)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The relatively long sandy beaches of El Maresme, and the bimodal wave climate of the Catalan coast, with dominant E-ENE and SSW waves that leads to high angle of incidence, propitiate good conditions for high angle of wave ...
  • Self-organized morphological patterns in coastal dynamics

    Accés obert
    the meaning and significance of self-organization processes in coastal morphodynamics is presented. Two types of coastal self-organized patterns are discussed: crescentic bars in the surf zone and free shoreline sand waves ...
  • Shoreline sand waves along the catalan coast

    The beach of Calella, north of Barcelona, in the Catalan coast, features a series of shoreline sand waves with wavelengths ranging from 700 to 1400 m that match with similar undulations in the -5 m bathymetric line. ...
  • What determines the wavelength of self-organized shoreline sand waves?

    Shoreline undulations extending into the bathymetric contours with a length scale larger than that of the rhythmic surf zone bars are referred to as shoreline sand waves. Many observed undulations along sandy coasts display ...
