    <∞, normalised to give unit depth at y  =0 and y  =1, given by equation(54) h^(x,y)=1−[1−d(εx)H0]exp−ay(1−y)1−tanhy−σ(εx)δ(εx)2,where d=[1−2H0+tanh(−σ/δ)]/[H0tanh(−σ/δ)−H0], H  0 is the depth at the coast, a   measures the gradient of the shelf slope, σσ gives the distance of the shelf break from the coast and δδ measures the slope of the shelf break. Various forms for the longshore variation σσ and δδ are discussed below.
