Abstract
    We have analysed sandbar morphology of the accretional Espiguette spit, using 10 meters depth bathymetric profiles for the time period 1985-1996. These profiles provide the morphological parameters of three sandbars. Our results show that the evolution of the bars according to distance from the shoreline might be linked with wave action. Moreover, the evolution of the bars according to time evidences that the shoreface general movement is offshore. In this preliminary study, the lack of data does not permit predictions of the shoreline and bar movement in relation with wave action.
