    A morphodynamical linear stability analysis is used to predict the natural development of crescentic bed patterns and rip channels. The purpose is to investigate whether this technique, which is useful for understanding ...
  • Morphological development of rip channel systems: normal and near-normal wave incidence 

    Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Dodd, Nicholas; Falqués Serra, Albert; Leeuwen, S.M.Van (2005-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The process of formation of a rip channel/crescentic bar system on a straight, sandy coast is examined. A short review of earlier studies is presented. A morphodynamic stability model is then formulated. The resulting model ...
  • Physics of nearshore bed pattern formation under regular or random waves 

    Leeuwen, S.M.Van; Dodd, Nicholas; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Falqués Serra, Albert (2006-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present an investigation into the growth of nearshore, rhythmic patterns. A comprehensive linear stability model of the surf and shoaling zones is used to examine which type of pattern, transverse or crescentic bar, is ...
