Based on 25 years of high-quality bathymetric surveys the presence of sand waves outside the Danish North Sea coast between the depths of 10 and 25 m has been documented. After a comprehensive hydrographic monitoring programme, including current measurements, geological surveys and mathematical modelling, it has been possible to explain the mechanisms of the sand wave migration and reach an estimate of their contribution to the cross-shore and longshore sediment transport.
