that of the adjacent sea) and various geomorpologic conditions, such as an
inlet with a long tidally dominated channel or a short wave-dominated
e. Equilibrium area channels for tide-only conditions
retained their original
length and widened and deepened upon approaching equilibrium cross-
Equilibrium area channels following tide-plus-wave conditions migrated
bayward as they approached equilibrium and shortened in length.
g. The equilibrium area experimental results will be useful in the design of
other experiments relating to ebb and flood shoals and spit migration in
the CIRP Idealized Inlet.
