Abstract A numerical model is presented to simulate the formation and evolution of intertidal bar morphology (‘ridges and runnels’). Cross-shore sediment transport is modeled using a sediment transport shape function, which is a mathematical formulation that expresses the (volumetric) sediment transport rate as a function of cross-shore location. For energetic wave conditions, the shape function predicts offshore sediment transport in the surf zone and onshore transport outside the surf zone… CONTINUE READING
