From the above sections, we may derive qualitative relations between net sediment transport and the morphological characteristics of tidal basins. Table 9.4 and Table 9.5 give an overview of the conditions for net flood- and ebb-transport for sediment in general and for fine sediment only respectively. In the tables, also the role of external conditions (tides, waves) is indicated.
