Swash Bar Effects On The Response Of A Large Barrier-Spit Terminus To Extreme Wave Climate: The Cap Ferret Example

Abstract : The succession of severe storms in the North-Eastern Atlantic during the 2013-2014 winter has generated exceptional erosion along the Gironde coast (SW France). Meanwhile, at the Southern extremity of this 110-km long sandy coastal stretch, the Cap Ferret barrier-spit terminus remained relatively stable. The spit terminus is flanked by the Bay of Arcachon tidal inlet which generates strong tidal currents that help local waves to build massive swash bars. Such a bar is seen as the main explanation to the contrasting behaviour observed throughout the winter.
