Abstract
    The shallowing of the entrance channel is due to a complex of coastal processes acting with different intensities at different localities. Residually northeasterly directed longshore subaquatic as well as eolian sediment movement is interrupted by the artificial transversal access channel. The sediment input causes a rapid choking of the channel as soon as dredging is stopped. This fact demonstrates the self-regulating capacity of the coastal system.
