Journal Article
Hackney, C. R., Hu, H., Wei, T., Yang, Z., Hackney, C., & Parsons, D. R. (2018). Low-angle dunes in the Changjiang (Yangtze) Estuary: Flow and sediment dynamics under tidal influence. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 205, (110-122). doi:10.1016/j.ecss.2018.03.009. ISSN 0272-7714

It has long been highlighted that important feedbacks exist between river bed morphology, sediment transport and the turbulent flow field and that these feedbacks change in response to forcing mechanisms. However, our current understanding of bedform... Read More

Sustainable rice cultivation in the deep flooded zones of the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (2017)
