Storms can produce large geomorphic features and exaggerated bedforms,
especially on low-energy coasts and adjacent shelves where they commonly
exert their greatest influence. During peak intensity, combined wind-driven
geostrophic currents and wave-induced oscillatory currents flow alongshore and
slightly offshore at up to 2 m/ s in relatively shallow water (<50 m). The coarsest
nearshore sediments (gravel and sand) are transported and deposited by these
strong currents, ...
