Blockage of saline intrusions in restricted, two-layer exchange flows across a submerged sill obstruction
(2018-02) - Journal article
Results are presented from a series of large-scale experiments investigating the internal and near-bed dynamics of bi-directional stratified flows with a net-barotropic component across a submerged, trapezoidal, sill ...
Instability in internal solitary waves with trapped cores
(2012-01) - Journal article
A numerical method that employs a combination of contour advection and pseudo-spectral techniques is used to investigate instability in internal solitary waves with trapped cores. A three-layer configuration for the ...
The characteristics of billows generated by internal solitary waves
(2017-02) - Journal article
The spatial and temporal development of shear-induced overturning billows associated with breaking internal solitary waves is studied by means of a combined laboratory and numerical investigation. The waves are generated ...
Experiments on the structure and stability of mode-2 internal solitary-like waves propagating on an offset pycnocline
(2015) - Journal article
The structure and stability of mode-2 internal solitary-like waves is investigated experimentally. A rank-ordered train of mode-2 internal solitary waves is generated using a lock release configuration. The pycnocline is ...
Boundary layer flow beneath an internal solitary wave of elevation
(2010-02) - Journal article
The wave-induced flow over a fixed bottom boundary beneath an internal solitary wave of elevation propagating in an unsheared, two-layer, stably stratified fluid is investigated experimentally. Measurements of the velocity ...
