    Waves with a large incidence angle in deep water can drive a morphodynamic instability on a sandy coast whereby shoreline sand waves, cuspate forelands, and spits can emerge. This instability is related to bathymetric ...
  • A new shoreline instability mechanism related to high-angle waves 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Kakeh Burgada, Nabil; Calvete Manrique, Daniel (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A new shoreline instability triggered by high-angle waves and leading to sand wave formation is investigated. In contrast with the well-known high angle wave instability, which involves both the surf and shoaling zones and ...
  • A new shoreline instability mechanism related to high-angle waves 

    Kakeh Burgada, Nabil; Falqués Serra, Albert; Calvete Manrique, Daniel (2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The alongshore wave driven sediment transport can render a rectilinear coastline unstable in case of very oblique wave incidence.
  • On the morphodynamic stability of intertidal environments and the role of vegetation 

    Kakeh Burgada, Nabil; Giovanni, Coco; Marani, Marco (Elsevier, 2016-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We describe the coupled biotic and abiotic dynamics in intertidal environments using a point model that includes suspended sediment deposition, wave-and current-driven erosion, biofilm sediment stabilization, and sediment ...
