Modélisation du festonnage des barres sableuses d’avant-côte : application à la côte aquitaine, France
MetadataShow full item record
Modeling of crescentic pattern development of nearshore bars: Aquitanian Coast, France. Nearshore crescentic bars play key role in nearshore morphodynamics. These bars are observed all along the Aquitanian Coast, with a mean wavelength of about 700 m. A non-linear stability analysis is undertaken to simulate the development of crescentic patterns. Results show that self-organization mechanism can lead alone to the development of these alongshore rhythmic features. Simulated wavelengths are in agreement with observations on the Aquitanian Coast.
