K.V.Horoshenkov, A.Nichols, S.J.Tait, G.A.Maximov, The pattern of surface waves in a shallow free surface flow


This work presents new water surface elevation data including evidence of the spatial correlation of water surface waves generated in shallow water flows over a gravel bed without appreciable bedforms. Careful laboratory experiments have shown that these water surface waves are not well-known gravity or capillary waves but are caused by a different physical phenomenon.
