    Estuarine morphology is to a large extent determined by the residual sediment transport pattern. However, the inverse statement is also true. Residual sediment transport depends on differences in magnitude and duration between ebb and flood tidal currents. Such differences ("tidal asymmetry") are produced by the distortion of the tidal wave propagating on the coastal shelf and entering bays and estuaries. In this study the relationship between tidal asymmetry and estuarine morphology is investigated. Based on theoretical considerations some general principles are derived and compared with field observations.
