Abstract
    In the period 1995-1999, a detailed morpho- and sediment dynamical investigation was carried out in the western Belgian near coastal area, in water depths of -3 to -15 m MLLWS. Through chronosequential bathymetrical and digital side-scan sonar registrations supplemented by intensive samplings, a quantitative monitoring of the most dynamic zones was accomplished. Although, the area is generally devoid of bedforms, well-constraint zones of very large dunes occur where the bed shear stresses are highest. Since, suspended load accounts for more than 80 %, the dimensions seem to be largely controlled by the amount of the total load actually taking part in bedform development. A clear differentiation exists between the morphology of the dunes and their surficial sediments, the troughs being up to 0.30 phi finer than the crests. During the observation period, the similarities in crestline positions were more striking than the differences and showed a maximum shift of only 20 m. The data set allowed to differentiate the vulnerability of the area to varying hydro-meteorological conditions and showed that the area recovers fairly quickly from stormy periods.
