Abstract

A temporal sequence of dissipative barrier, reflective barrier and inner reflective (barrier face)/outer dissipative (subtidal) wave regimes match respectively periods of barrier crest build up by crestal dune development, barrier crest instability (barrier width increasing , height decreasing) due to rhythmic overwash and a return to barrier crest stability with limited aeolian accretion. Two barriers at different stages are discussed
