Near wake of emergent vegetation patches in shallow flow (2018)
Journal Article
Wunder, S., Trevisson, M., Heckele, C., Chagot, L., Murphy, B., McLelland, S., …Eiff, O. (2018). Near wake of emergent vegetation patches in shallow flow. E3S Web of Conferences, 40, https://doi.org/10.1051/e3sconf/20184002057

Vegetation patches are particularly difficult to quantify in terms of flow resistance due to their complex geometry and topological behaviour under hydrodynamic loading. They not only influence the water level and mean velocities due to the drag they... Read More about Near wake of emergent vegetation patches in shallow flow.

The adaptation of dunes to changes in river flow (2018)
Journal Article
Reesink, A. J. H., Parsons, D. R., Ashworth, P. J., Best, J. L., Hardy, R. J., Murphy, B. J., …Unsworth, C. (2018). The adaptation of dunes to changes in river flow. Earth-Science Reviews, 185, 1065-1087. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2018.09.002

The dunes that cover the beds of most alluvial channels change in size and shape over time and in space, which in turn affects the flow and sediment-transport dynamics of the river. However, both the precise mechanisms of such adaptation of dunes, an... Read More about The adaptation of dunes to changes in river flow.

An investigation of the wake recovery of two model horizontal-axis tidal stream turbines measured in a laboratory flume with Particle Image Velocimetry (2017)

Journal of Hydro-environment Research, 19, 179-188. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jher.2017.03.003

© 2017 International Association for Hydro-environment Engineering and Research, Asia Pacific Division. The uptake of tidal stream-turbine (TST) technology lags other renewable energy sources despite the advantages of predictability, stability and in...

Groundwater seepage landscapes from distant and local sources in experiments and on Mars (2015)
Journal Article
Marra, W. A., McLelland, S. J., Parsons, D. R., Murphy, B. J., Hauber, E., & Kleinhans, M. G. (2015). Groundwater seepage landscapes from distant and local sources in experiments and on Mars. Earth surface dynamics ESURF ; an interactive open access journal of the European Geosciences Union, 3(3), 389-408. https://doi.org/10.5194/esurf-3-389-2015

© 2014 Author(s). Valleys with theater-shaped heads can form due to the seepage of groundwater and as a result of knickpoint (waterfall) erosion generated by overland flow. This ambiguity in the mechanism of formation hampers the interpretation of su... Read More about Groundwater seepage landscapes from distant and local sources in experiments and on Mars.

Pressurized groundwater outflow experiments and numerical modeling for outflow channels on Mars (2014)
Journal Article
Marra, W. A., Hauber, E., McLelland, S. J., Murphy, B. J., Parsons, D. R., Conway, S. J., …Kleinhans, M. G. (2014). Pressurized groundwater outflow experiments and numerical modeling for outflow channels on Mars. Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, 119(12), 2668-2693. https://doi.org/10.1002/2014JE004701

© 2014. American Geophysical Union. All Rights Reserved. The landscape of Mars shows incised channels that often appear abruptly in the landscape, suggesting a groundwater source. However, groundwater outflow processes are unable to explain the recon... Read More about Pressurized groundwater outflow experiments and numerical modeling for outflow channels on Mars.

Flow separation at the inner (convex) and outer (concave) banks of constant-width and widening open-channel bends (2012)
Journal Article
Blanckaert, K., Kleinhans, M. G., Mclelland, S. J., Uijttewaal, W. S., Murphy, B., van de Kruijs, A., …Chen, Q. (2013). Flow separation at the inner (convex) and outer (concave) banks of constant-width and widening open-channel bends. Earth surface processes and landforms : the journal of the British Geomorphological Research Group, 38(7), 696-716. https://doi.org/10.1002/esp.3324

There is a paucity of data and insight in the mechanisms of, and controls on flow separation and recirculation at natural sharply-curved river bends. Herein we report on successful laboratory experiments that elucidate flow structure in one constant-...
