Abstract

Literature shows that storms play a significant role in sand wave dynamics. We present a 3D idealized sand wave model, capable of systematically investigating the influence of storm-related processes, i.e. wind-driven flow and wind waves, on the formation stage of sand waves. Model results show that wind-driven flow affects sand wave migration, and wind-waves affect the wavelength and growth rate of the fastest growing mode.
