Abstract

A backwash vortex has been observed under waves running up a sloping bed. The vortex is formed at the edge of the swash zone when backwash turns back into an oncoming wave bore. The vortex eroded a bed consisting of glass beads, and formed a step which induced the formation of sand ripples.
