Abstract
Crescentic bar events at Castelldefels beach (NW Mediterranean) have been characterised using a 4.25 years dataset (October 2010-December 2014) of time-exposure video images. Crescentic bars are observed during 41% of the study period, with an irregular distribution of the events in the different years. The crescentic bars have a lifetime that varies from 1 to over 100 days, a mean wavelength of 245 m and a mean amplitude of 9 m. The bars are observed in relatively low-...
