Morphological update

At present we have a nice beach profile with bar and berm. The berm is likely to grow over the next few days (A6, A7 and A8), but the bar may disappear as sediment is moved onshore by powerful plunging breakers and swashes. We shall see - the entire BARDEX II team has not been particularly successful in predicting morphological response!

Comparison between profile at the start of BARDEX II and the profile measured halfway during test series A6. Green, blue and red circles represent positions of offshore, surf zone and swash zone rigs, respectively.
