Abstract: [1] High-resolution bathymetry at centimeter-scale accuracy acquired with a multibeam echo sounder system revealed the existence of barchanoid-shaped large (i.e., length 10-100 m) to very large (i.e., length >100 m) dunes in the Grådyb tidal inlet channel in the Danish Wadden Sea. The development of these dunes is due to an increase in dune celerity from 12 m/yr in the center of the channel to around 30 m/yr at the sides. This increase in dune celerity can be explained by the fact that dune heights decrease f…
