 Bar (landform) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Bars tend to be long and narrow (linear) and develop where a current (or waves) promote deposition of particles, resulting in localized shallowing (shoaling) of the water.
In a nautical sense, a bar is a shoal, similar to a reef: a shallow formation of (usually) sand that is a navigation or grounding hazard.
Bars that occur at or off the shoreline of a sea or a lake are related to beaches and might be considered offshore features of a beach (Bascom, 1980).

bar and channel topography - A local-scale topographic pattern of recurring, small, sinuous or arcuate ridges separated by shallow troughs irregularly spaced across low-relief flood plains(slopes generally 2 -6 %); the effect is one of a subdued, sinuously undulating surface that is common on active, meandering flood plains.
Micro-elevational differences between bars and channels generally range from <0.5 to 2 m and are largely controlled by the competency of the stream.
Landforms include playas, broad alluvial flats containing ephemeral drainageways, and relict alluvial and lacustrine surfaces that rarely, if ever, are subject to flooding.

 How it Works
For example, precipitons move to lower elevations, simulating water running downhill; the amount of erosion is proportional to the local slope and to the erodibility of the rock, simulating speedier erosion of steeper slope and less erosion of hard rocks or vegetation protected areas.
The global pattern of landform occurs after the same local rules are applied to many precipitons (i.e., hundreds thousands to millions of iterations).
The slide bars are used to control the viewing angle.

 Environmental Protection Agency
Within-channel barforms appear to be the predominant incipient floodplain landform and habitat for primary succession, interlinked development of bar(s) and erosion of near banks, filling of channels, and establishment and growth of cottonwoods and willows results in coalescence with older floodplain.
Floodplain matures as the active channel migrates away by repetition of the bar formation and near-bank erosion process, or is progressively abandoned by infilling and/or construction with a bar.
Given the central role of bars and islands in building new floodplain habitat, we identify their area as a geomorphic indicator of river-floodplain integrity.

 Beach - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Some geologists consider a beach to be just this shoreline feature of deposited material, but William Bascom (1980) has argued that a beach is the entire system of sand set in motion by waves to a depth of ten meters (30+ feet) or more off ocean coasts.
Submerged, longshore bars are therefore also part of the beach.
This gently-sloping beach face is topped by a beach crest onto which a salt-tolerant grass (Sporobolus virginicus) is spreading from the incipient sand), winds shape the feature.

At the very bottom of the face, there may be a trough, and further seaward one or more longshore bars: slightly raised, underwater embankments formed where the waves first start to break.
The sand deposit may extend well inland from the berm crest, where there may be evidence of one or more older crests (the storm beach) resulting from very large storm waves and beyond the influence of the normal waves.
Beaches are deposition landforms, and are the result of wave action by which waves or currents move sand or other loose sediments of which the beach is made as these particles are held in suspension.

A number of factors, ranging from plate tectonics to erosion and deposition can generate and affect landforms.
Biological factors can also influence landforms -- see for example the role of plants in the development of dune systems and salt marshes, and the work of corals and algae in the formation of coral reefs.
Landforms produced by erosion and weathering usually occur in coastal or fluvial environments, and many appear above under those headings.
