Abstract

Sandy coasts are characterized by many rhythmic patterns like, for instance, cusps (metric scale), megacusps (hundreds meters) or shoreline sandwaves (kilometric scale). The processes involved in the formation of such shoreline patterns have already been analysed, by field observation and/or modeling. Cusps and megacusps would be mainly related to surf zone processes, whereas shoreline sandwaves would be strongly controlled by shoaling area processes (Falques and Calvete, 2005)...
