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. doi: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

Near wake of emergent vegetation patches in shallow flow
Presentation / Conference
Wunder, S., Trevisson, M., Heckele, C., Chagot, L., Murphy, B., McLelland, S., …Eiff, O. Near wake of emergent vegetation patches in shallow flow. Paper presented at River Flow 2018 - Ninth International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics

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
