    A sand wave field on the northern extremity of the Kwintebank (Belgian continental platform) was mapped three times over a period of one year with the help of side-scan sonar and echosounder. The geometric characteristics of the sand waves are described in detail. Shifting of the sand waves occurred in the directions of both their gentle and steep slopes. The net movement over one year is, however, minimal.
