Rapidly-migrating and internally-generated knickpoints can control submarine channel evolution. Nature communications, 11(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-020-16861-x

Submarine channels are the primary conduits for terrestrial sediment, organic carbon, and pollutant transport to the deep sea. Submarine channels are far more difficult to monitor than rivers, and thus less well understood. Here we present 9 years of...

Asymmetric effects of a modelled tidal turbine on the flow and seabed (2020)
Journal Article
Ramírez-Mendoza, R., Ramírez -Mendoza, R., Murdoch, L., Jordan, L. B., Amoudry, L. O., McLelland, S., …Vezza, M. (2020). Asymmetric effects of a modelled tidal turbine on the flow and seabed. Renewable energy, 159, 238-249. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2020.05.133

The extraction of power from the flow of water has become an important potential source of clean energy. In spite of significant interest in the interaction between energy extraction devices and water currents, comparatively little work has focused o...

Novel acoustic method provides first detailed measurements of sediment concentration structure within submarine turbidity currents (2020)
Journal Article
Simmons, S. M., Azpiroz-Zabala, M., Cartigny, M. J. B., Clare, M. A., Cooper, C., Parsons, D., …Talling, P. J. (2020). Novel acoustic method provides first detailed measurements of sediment concentration structure within submarine turbidity currents. Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 125(5), https://doi.org/10.1029/2019jc015904

Turbidity currents transport prodigious volumes of sediment to the deep-sea. But there are very few direct measurements from oceanic turbidity currents, ensuring they are poorly understood. Recent studies have used acoustic Doppler current profilers...
