Journal Article
Hardy, R. J., Best, J. L., Parsons, D. R., & Marjoribanks, T. I. (2016). On the evolution and form of coherent flow structures over a gravel bed: Insights from whole flow field visualization and measurement. Journal of geophysical research. JGR. Earth surface, 121(8), 1472-1493. doi:10.1002/2015JF003753

©2016. The Authors. The microtopography of a gravel bed river has been shown to generate turbulent flow structures that originate from shear flow generated in the near-bed region. Although field and laboratory measurements have shown that such flows... Read More
