Abstract

At all scales, there are potential suites of interaction between system forms and processes, and thhe mechanisms of interaction are stressed in this article. At micro-scales, this interaction is formalized through the concept of morphodynamics, and deterministic and probabilistic approaches are used to model sediment transport and landform development over time scales of hours to months and space scales of metres to kilometres. Meso-scale interactions are conceptualized using a sediment-budget approach. Nine characteristic environments comprise the beach and dune sediment-budget ensemble, representing a classification scheme for reciprocating coastal systems
