Maps of the sea bed in the region of a tidal inlet have been produced using a novel analysis of image sequences of waves recorded from a land based marine radar. The sea bed changes determined using these maps and occurring over a four year period, have shown how such inlets interrupt the transport of sediment by longshore drift, directly contributing to the erosion of the downdrift coastline.
