Morphological Processes in Shallow Tidal Seas
The formation and the elementary behaviour (e.g. propagation, growth and decay, dispersion) of linear sand banks in shallow tidal seas are analyzed. The principal tool is a linearized mathematical model of three-dimensional topographical changes of a sandy bottom in a tidal environment.
The resulting insight is used to explain this class of sand banks, in general, and the sand bank system off the coast of Holland, The Netherlands, in particular.
