A previous study conducted by Abanades et nbsp al analysed
The wave farm at a distance of 2 km presented a significant rise in the volume of material in the southern area of the beach, especially taking as reference the profiles PA and PB. This could be associated to the modification of the wave patterns brought about by the wave farm, given that the main AT 9283 of the significant wave height occurred in the southern and middle area of the beach. Therefore, part of the material eroded in the northern section, where the reduction of the significant wave height was less, could be moved to the southern part of the beach, increasing the volume in this section. As for the wave farm at 4 and 6 km, they did not present significant differences compared with the baseline scenario, nonetheless the erosion caused in the absence of the farm was greater. For instance, in the northern area of the different profiles, it is observed that the greatest accretion at x = 1250 m occurred in the baseline scenario due to the largest amount of material eroded at the beach face. In the case of the profile PA, this was followed by the scenario with the wave farm at a distance of 2 km, associated with the material moved from the north of the beach, but for the profiles PB and PC, the greatest values of accretion, after the baseline scenario, occurred with the wave farm at 4 and 6 km given that the farm at these distances reduced the erosion less than the scenario at 2 km. To sum up, a wave farm can alter not just the wave conditions in its lee but also the morphology and the sediment transport of the beach.
