REVIEW -esurf-2020-88 (Ciarletta et al.) This work by Ciarletta & colleagues is an engaging and well-written exploration of cross-shore barrier dynamics in a deliberately simplified numerical model. The authors are clear about what the model does and does not explicitly address, and that it serves a tool for first-order quantitative insight into transitions between barrier states and behaviors otherwise framed in conceptual terms. The differentiated regime space indicates the rich dynamics that
