Abstract: [1] In the Grådyb tidal inlet (Danish Wadden Sea) simple medium to large dunes, which are superimposed on large to very large dunes, increase in size with decreasing grain size under quasi-constant ebb dominated mean flow conditions. The mean height of the superimposed dunes increases from 0.1 m to 0.5 m and the mean dune length from 7 m to 12 m. This happens over a distance of 1.5 km from the inner to the outer part where mean depth (12 m) and the dominant ebb current (1.0 m s À1 ) remain constant. Over this…
