Abstract

Tidal sandwaves form a prominent bed pattern in shallow sandy shelf seas. Here the class of idealised process-based models, aimed at obtaining generic insight in sandwave dynamics, is reviewed. Since many model studies focus on the instability underlying sandwave formation, first an outline of linear stability analysis is given. Then, an overview of model results is presented, highlighting two ongoing research projects (SMARTSEA and SANDBOX) and followed by suggestions
for future research.
