  • Abstract Time serial bathymetric data acquired between 2004 and 2009 are used to evaluate the morphological evolution of the coastal area offshore Pointe Odden, located on the Mandji Island (Gabon). Data analysis highlights the alternation between fast sedimentation periods at shallow water depth related to intense longshore drift and catastrophic erosional events. Because of sediment overloading and slope oversteepening, small-scale instabilities are generated (successive slide scars, channel… CONTINUE READING
