We extend existing knowledge on theoretical growth characteristics of tidal sand banks by including asymmetrical tides with an M0, M2 and M4-constituent, thus allowing for migration. Furthermore, in the context of the continuously increasing demand on the Dutch sand market, we show that creating a large-scale offshore sand pit has long-term morphological implications, both for the pit itself and the surrounding area. The pit deepens, while around it a sand bank pattern emerges, spreading at a constant rate of the order of tens to hundred metres per year.
