11 The growth of megacusps as shoreline instabilities is investigated by ex-12 amining the coupling between wave transformation in the shoaling zone, long-13 shore transport in the surf zone, cross-shore transport, and morphological 14 evolution. This coupling is known to drive a potential positive feedback in 15 case of very oblique wave incidence, leading to an unstable shoreline and the 16 consequent formation of shoreline sandwaves. Here, using a linear stability 17 model based on the one… CONTINUE READING
