Abstract:Interactions between hydrodynamic forcing and the seabed are presently not fully understood. A range of techniques can be applied to the study of long term changes of large-scale seabed features, including stability analysis, primary component analysis, numerical modelling, and selforganization. To improve the understanding of morphodynamic processes, and provide a benchmark dataset to test and calibrate numerical morphological models, a series of experiments was carried out on the evolution of a mound of sand subject to steady or tidal flows in the UK Coastal Research Facility (García-Hermosa et al. 2007).
