Abstract

The principal aim of this paper is to investigate whether the ridges are preferentially located on the intertidal profile where the water level is stationary for the longest time and whether the height of the ridges increases across the intertidal profile in the seaward direction. The morphological characteristics of ridge and runnel beaches from 3 locations (Lincolnshire, Blackpool beach, England, and Leffrinckoucke beach, north France) with varying wave, tidal and geomorphic settings. It is suggested that the ridges are the result of a combination of swash and surf zone processes acting across the intertidal zone
