... The Equilibrium Beach Profile (EBP) means a profile along which local, time-averaged net cross-shore sediment transport is everywhere nil under a given wave condition and water level for a sufficiently long time. Analysis of the equilibrium profile of a sandy beach is important for coastal engineering design. Previous studies focused on establishing empirical beach shape relations, which do not support us to understand the underlying equilibrium morphodynamic mechanisms. In this study, detailed hydraulic and sediment transport processes on an equilibrium profile are revealed based on a process-based numerical model. It is found that the equilibrium is achieved by the balance between onshore sediment transport induced by wave nonlinearity and current-induced offshore transport. A dimensionless parameter is proposed so that we can measure the ‘distance’ from equilibrium for a beach based on sufficient wave recordings. These findings can enrich basic hydrodynamics theory and guide coastal engineering and practice.

... DTSSP and then digested with chymotrypsin and analysed by LC/MS-MS by the University of Cambridge Proteomics Facility. TolC was identified with an emPAI score of 11.1 and AcrA with a score of 10.2. Controls with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were also analysed from the same gel, selecting a band that migrated as a dimer. The crosslinked BSA sample identified 126 peptides that had reacted with the DTSSP, while the control showed 4 false positives. The location of the peptide fragments with mass corresponding to reduced DTSSP were mapped onto the crystal structures of TolC and AcrA and correspond to the equatorial domain and helical hairpin of TolC and the helical hairpin, lipoyl domain and membrane proximal domain of AcrA
