Abstract
    Bottom features generated by strong currents at coastal estuarine regions are frequently referred to as sand waves. Shape, orientation, morphology and migration provide significant information about sediment dynamics and direction of bottom transport. Defining migration of dunes, Bartholomä (2008) indicates that most of the studies working with transect lines use hand-picked longitudinal profiles. Small-scale flow structure, local hydrodynamic regimes and residual sediment transport can be described by bottom morphology sequences and migration analysis (Barnard, 2012).
