The objective of this study is to characterize the three-dimensional flow patterns over spur-and-groove formations, and to conduct a sensitivity analysis of those patterns to waves, currents, and spur-and-groove (SAG) geometry parameters. An extensive set of physics-based Delft3D-FLOW and SWAN hydrodynamic model simulations (with input files here included) were used to describe the circulation patterns found within SAG formations and to identify their governing mechanisms.
