Abstract

Sand waves are rhythmic features on the bottom of shallow seas. Their shape drives the habitat selection of benthic organisms and contributes to the redistribution of sediments. In turn, benthic activity and the sorting of sediments affect the dimensions and dynamics of sand waves. These complex interactions among sand waves, benthic organisms and sediment sorting processes are investigated in this thesis.
