The aim of this paper is to investigate the spatial and temporal dynamics of intertidal rip channels and their relation with offshore wave characteristics and with subtidal rip channel characteristics on a microtidal, storm-dominated beach. A 15-month data set of daily time-averaged video images (Argus) has been analyzed to describe the spatial and temporal variability of the rip channels on a multiple-barred coast at Noordwijk aan Zee, The Netherlands. The spatial and temporal variability of the number of rip channels, spacing and migration rates demonstrated the daily behaviour of the intertidal rip channels and revealed a coupling with hydrodynamic parameters as well as subtidal rip channel characteristics. Coupling of the intertidal and subtidal alongshore bar rhythmicities confirmed the influence of the subtidal morphology on the intertidal bar system
