How do sand-bed meandering rivers co-construct their own bankfull discharge and bankfull channel geometry? Analytical and numerical study (2019-04-02)Alluvial rivers are authors of their own geometry. Given water and sediment, a river constructs its own well-defined channel and floodplain. This channel is characterized by a bankfull width and depth, longitudinal slope, ...
Laboratory experiments on alluvial cover in mixed bedrock-alluvial meandering channels and on the formation and evolution of supraglacial meltwater meandering streams (2018-06-20)Rivers and other channels containing liquid flow develop meandering patterns over different media and across a broad range of scales. For example, alluvial rivers form and evolve by erosion and deposition of sediment, and ...
(2015-12-01)This dissertation was motivated by a study of the July 2010 Kalamazoo River oil spill. The spill occurred due to a pipeline rupture, releasing approximately 1.1 million US gallons of diluted bitumen into Talmadge Creek, ...
