G. Mariotti, F. Falcini, N. Geleynse, M. Guala, T. Sun and S. Fagherazzi Sediment eddy diffusivity in meandering turbulent jets: Implications for levee formation at river mouths Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface 118

Article first published online: 17 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrf.20134

Key Points

  • Instability of plane jets enhances sediment diffusivity
  • Max sediment diffusivity found matching deposition and eddy time scales
  • Max sediment diffusivity promotes levees formation
