On the numerical prediction of turbidity currents.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Parker and coworkers developed a theoretical model for depositing and eroding turbidity currents. Furthermore, this model motivated an experimental study of turbidity currents that was conducted at the St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory. Such experiments provided useful information about different aspects and parameters of turbidity currents. Herein, the ability of the theoretical model to predict spatially developing turbid underflows is tested using the data obtained in the experimental study. (A)
