This study describes the morphodynamics of multiple intertidal bars in North Lincolnshire during single and lunar tidal cycles under 2 contrasting conditions : first when significant wave height was <0.5 m; second when significant wave height frequently exceeded 1 m. The relative importance of swash, surf and shoaling processes in determining morphological change was examined using detailed field observations and a numerical model. The results strongly suggest that changes in the intertidal morphology are accomplished by surf zone processes rather than by shoaling wave or swash processes. It was found, however, that swash action may induce a significant amount of local morphological change when the high tide mark is located on the upper bar, making this process important for bar morphodynamics
