Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper introduces the main results of a large dataset concerning the impacts of storm events and recovery period on a microtidal double barred beach of the NW Mediterranean Sea (Lido de Sète, Gulf of Lions, South France). The objective is to discuss of the key control parameters among both the forcing conditions and the morphological state of t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Sea-level rise and changes in storm frequency and intensity will undoubtedly modify beach morphology. To reduce shoreline retreat, many structural solutions have been proposed by coastal engineers. Among them, Submerged BreakWaters (SBW) are becoming a preferred solution owing to their aesthetical and environmental advantages. Here, a reduced scale...
Conference Paper
Cuspate shoreline or megacusps, having alongshore lengths of 100-1000 m, are features widely described, and several theories were proposed for their formation and evolution (edge waves, self-organization). Their dynamics is often related with rip-currents migration, crescentic nearshore bars evolution, even if the relationship between shoreline rhy...

Article
The Languedoc-Roussillon coastline is a large unit stretching out over 200 km of sandy low coast in a wave dominated environment. The nearshore is characterized by a quasi continuous system of double sandbar that displays a wide range of typology. The interannual sandbar dynamic was investigated using 2D bathymetric profiles and 3D LiDAR imagery. T...

Résumé : Dans le cadre du projet européen MICORE (Morphological Impacts and COastal Risks induced by Extreme storm events), des campagnes de mesures ont été menées pendant 3 hivers successifs sur le Lido de Sète à Marseillan, afin d'analyser les changements morphologiques lors des événements énergétiques. Depuis le mois d'avril 2011, un système vid...
Article
Along the coast, anticipating the different morphological responses induced by storm events is crucial for man-agers to evaluate coastal risks and to develop the best measures to mitigate them. In this paper, a methodology is developed to determine the best storm intensity parameter to derive storm thresholds for different morpholog-ical responses....
Article
Full-text available
This work aims to investigate the processes responsible for the morphodynamics of barred beach during storm events. The contribution compares the response of 2 nearshore bars during storm events at a microtidal double barred beach of the Gulf of Lions, NW Mediterranean Sea (France). Storm-specific experiments were undertaken to assess the morpholog...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A field campaign of two months took place during winter 2008-2009 in Sete (Languedoc-Roussillon) to improve the understanding of hydrodynamic processes that control the straight bars in microtidal environment. It turns out that there are a large number of configurations of current speeds in the whole of the water column in connection with the meteo...

Full-text available
L'action des tempetes marines entraine souvent des reponses morphologiques rapides et des impacts importants sur les littoraux sableux : recul du trait de cote, submersion et erosion de la plage, franchissements et destruction des systemes dunaires et parfois de l'ensemble du cordon littoral, mais provoque egalement une importante dynamique des bar...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this paper is to present the topographic and bathymetric surveys acquired during the international ECORS mission (March-April 2008) at Truc Vert Beach, SW of France. Topographic surveys have been done with an accuracy of about 2.5cm in the horizontal directions and 3cm for the elevation. Using both a GPS kinematics (by foot or implemente...
Article
Full-text available
A methodology to compare in relative terms the coastal vulnerability to storm impacts is presented and applied to three sites in the Mediterranean Sea. The analysis separately evaluates the vulnerability to storm-induced processes (inundation and erosion) and, it quantifies the contribution of the forcing (storm properties) and receptor (beach geom...
Article
The south part of the Gulf of Lions coast (Mediterranean Sea) and its double crescentic sandbar system has been observed monthly during a 3-year long period (2005-2008) and yearly from 2000. This paper proposes a conceptual model of the morphodynamic evolution of this microtidal bar system supported by field bathymetric surveys and hydrodynamics me...
