Bruce MacVicar and Jim Best A flume experiment on the effect of channel width on the perturbation and recovery of flow in straight pools and riffles with smooth boundaries Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface 118

Article first published online: 16 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrf.20133

Key Points

  • Hydrodynamics of riffle-pools can be understood using perturbation theory.
  • Recovery of lateral flow and Reynolds stress is sensitive to channel width.
  • The length scale of flow recovery matches empirical bedform scaling relations.
