The statistics and kinematics of transverse sand bars on an open coast. Marine Geology, , 69– Patches of several transverse sand bars attached to the shoreline and extending inside the surf zone with an oblique orientation have been observed in open beaches. Alongshore spacings between successive crests range from 20 to m. Several events of formation and evolution of transverse bar . Coastal Dynamics OBSERVATIONS AND MODELING OF TRANSVERSE FINGER BARS Anneke ten Doeschate 1, Francesca Ribas 2, Huib de Swart 1, Gerben Ruessink 1 and Daniel Calvete 2 Abstract The formation of transverse finger bars at Surfers Paradise, in the Gold Coast, East Australia, has been characterized. Study site. The study was performed at the Mm 3 Sand Engine, a concentrated sand nourishment along the southwest–northeast (42° with respect to the north) oriented Delfland coast, Netherlands (Figure 2).The Sand Engine was constructed in summer with the aim of feeding the beaches of the erosive Delfland coast under predicted sea level rise, in a more efficient and environmentally.

This review summarizes the morphological characteristics and dynamics of nearshore sand bars observed in the surf zone of sandy beaches worldwide, with length scales ranging from tens to hundreds of meters and time scales ranging from hours to weeks. They include shore-parallel bars (straight and crescentic) and transverse bars of different types. The transverse bars identified off Anna Maria Island are found for about 3 km along the coast and extend 4 km offshore, well outside the normal surf-zone width.
