Gravity-driven flow in a submarine channel bend: Direct field evidence of helical flow reversal (2010)
Journal Article
Parsons, D. R., Peakall, J., Aksu, A. E., Flood, R. D., Hiscott, R. N., Beşiktepe, Ş., & Mouland, D. (2010). Gravity-driven flow in a submarine channel bend: Direct field evidence of helical flow reversal. Geology, 38(12), 1063-1066. https://doi.org/10.1130/G31121.1

Submarine meandering channels are conduits that transport gravity-driven flows and sediments into the deep sea. Such channel systems form distributive networks across submarine fans, ultimately forming the largest sedimentary deposits on Earth. Despi... Read More

Response of river-dominated delta channel networks to permanent changes in river discharge (2010)
Journal Article
Edmonds, D., Slingerland, R., Best, J., Parsons, D., & Smith, N. (2010). Response of river-dominated delta channel networks to permanent changes in river discharge. Geophysical research letters, 37(12), 1-5. https://doi.org/10.1029/2010GL043269

Using numerical experiments, we investigate how river-dominated delta channel networks are likely to respond to changes in river discharge predicted to occur over the next century as a result of environmental change. Our results show for a change in... Read More

A new methodology for the quantitative visualization of coherent flow structures in alluvial channels using multibeam echo-sounding (MBES) (2010)
Journal Article
Best, J., Simmons, S., Parsons, D., Oberg, K., Czuba, J., & Malzone, C. (2010). A new methodology for the quantitative visualization of coherent flow structures in alluvial channels using multibeam echo-sounding (MBES). Geophysical research letters, 37(6), https://doi.org/10.1029/2009gl041852

In order to investigate the interactions between turbulence and suspended sediment transport in natural aqueous environments, we ideally require a technique that allows simultaneous measurement of fluid velocity and sediment concentration for the who... Read More
