ObjectivesAmSedIS: Amplified sediment waves.

1. Study carbonate formation due to methane oxidation in gas seepage and establishing its association with extreme sediment wave growth.
2. Quantify the role of sediment grain size and sorting on both "extreme" and "normal" sediment wave development.
3. Validate and improve the capability of a morphodynamic model for sediment wave development, both for "normal" sizes and
amplified dimensions.
