dc.description.abstractIn the Gulf of Khambhat (Gujarat, India) the best formed sandwaves are seen in the west close to the Eastern Sand Bank. With increasing clay content and clay cover of the sea bed, the sandwaves become poorly formed. In the southern part of the Gulf the sandwaves are nearly symmetrical <2 m height and 100-200 m wavelength. In the northern part of Gulf the sandwaves are asymmetrical, 3-4 m high and 300-400 m wavelength. The sediments in the crest are finer than those in the troughs. The extensive development of the sandwaves in the Gulf is related to the abundant coarse sediment from the rivers Narmada and Tapti. High energy hydrodynamic conditions primarily, due to large tidal range in the funnel shaped Gulf appear to be responsible for the formation of these sandwaves.en_US
