In tidal inlets, one of the leading sand input processes to a coastline stretch happens in the form of shoal attachment (Gaudiano and Kana, 2001). The process is characterized by an accumulation of sand that detaches from the ebb-tidal delta and moves towards the coastline, leading to several changes in the neighbouring beach-dune system. Recent insights from Texel (NL) show that a vast ebb-tidal shoal is attaching the coast (Elias and van der Spek, 2017). Such attachment will lead to currently unknown changes in the adjacent beach-dune system. The objective of this study is to evaluate potential scenarios of beach-dune development due to shoal attachment.
