Fig. 9. Side Scan survey record of the jettied entrance of Saco River Inlet. The top survey was taken
during average tidal conditions whereas the bottom record (same channel region) was taken during
high freshwater discharge conditions. Correspondingly, the bedforms changes from symmetrical
ripples to ebb-oriented megaripples (from Kelley et al., 1995).
