[1] In double sandbar systems, the alongshore variability in the inner bar often resembles that of the outer bar, suggesting that the outer bar acts as a morphological template for the inner bar. Earlier observations have indicated that this resemblance, also termed “coupling,” may take several forms. Here we apply a nonlinear 2DH morphodynamic model with time-invariant forcing to show that the angle of wave incidence (θ) is crucial for the alongshore-variable morphodynamic evolution of the… CONTINUE READING
