Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) herein provides information on the formation and behavior of sand spits at inlets. Their interaction with navigation channels and possible consequences for water exchange are discussed. A mathematical model is presented to estimate spit development, and an example of physical modeling of spit evolution is given to illustrate properties of spit growth at inlets and model capabilities.
