  • This study describes the morphodynamics of multiple intertidal bars in North Lincolnshire during single and lunar tidal cycles under 2 contrasting conditions : first when significant wave height was
  • frequently exceeded 1 m. The relative importance of swash, surf and shoaling processes in determining morphological change was examined using detailed field observations and a numerical model. The results strongly suggest that changes in the intertidal
  • morphology are accomplished by surf zone processes rather than by shoaling wave or swash processes. It was found, however, that swash action may induce a significant amount of local morphological change when the high tide mark is located on the upper bar

  • The long-term (10-100 years) evolution of tidal channels is generally considered to interact with bio-geomorphic evolution of the surrounding intertidal platform. Here the AA. studied how the geometric properties of tidal channels (channel drainage
  • density and channel width) change as (1) vegetation establishes on an initially bare intertidal platform and (2) sediment accretion on the intertidal platform leads to a reduction in the tidal prism (i.e. water volume that during a tidal cycle floods
  • to and drains back from the intertidal platform). Based on a time series of aerial photographs and digital elevation models, the AA. derived the channel geometric properties at different time steps during the evolution from an initially low-elevated bare tidal
