[1] Sandbars are ubiquitous, yet not well understood beach features that change their position and shape in response to changing wave conditions. We propose and test a simple empirical model consisting of two coupled linear differential equations that represents bar dynamics in terms of wave forcing and two other state variables: (1) the mean cross-shore bar position and (2) the alongshore variability about that mean. Model coefficients are constrained by fitting to a 2-month data set, and the… CONTINUE READING
