Abstract
    A four-year study started in 1999 centers on grainsize variability and seafloor stability along the crest of a particular sand wave in Dutch offshore block S2. Most data from literature suggest that due to higher current velocities and higher wave activity somewhat coarser grain sizes may be expected on a sand wave crest compared to a sand wave trough. However, the magnitude of the differences and their variability is a largely uncharted field as are the effects of moving bedforms and seasonal variations.
