Historical maps of southwest Texel and the adjacent ebb-tidal delta, supplemented with quartz OSL (Optically Stimulated Luminescence) ages of dune sand, span four centuries and show several links between coastal development and ebb-tidal-delta behavior. Updrift inlet migration governed recurved-spit formation, and changes in ebb-tidal-delta size...
