The generation and migration of bedforms on shallow-water sandy bottoms provide a mechanism whereby mine-like objects can become gradually buried. The ultimate goal of this work is to examine field data in order to develop a predictive understanding of coastal bedform statistics, bedform distribution, and the consequences of bedforms on the potential burial rates of bottom objects.
