Abstract

Northeast of Dover Strait the tails of both Sandettie and South Falls bank converge to confine a narrow ebb dominated passage flanked by fields of large sand waves. Two thirds of the channel floor is barred by a transverse ridge of gravel that forms an erosion resistant sill behind which a tapering lobe of sediment has accumulated. The morphology of this unique setting is described from recent hydrographic and sidescan sonar data. - (L'A.)
