    Open Access
    A horizontal layer containing a miscible mixture of two fluids can generate dissipative solitons called convectons when heated from below. The physics of the system leading to this behavior is explained, and the properties ...

  • The role of surface rollers on the formation of surfzone transverse sand bars 

    Ribas Prats, Francesca; Swart, Huib E. de; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Falqués Serra, Albert (World Scientific Publishing Company, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    A morphodynamic model has been developed to gain more fundamental knowledge about the formation of transverse finger sand bars. The model describes the feedback between waves, rollers, depth-averaged currents and bed ...
  • The role of the depth-averaged concentration in coastal morphodynamics 

    Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Falqués Serra, Albert; Swart, Huib E. de; Dodd, Nicholas; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Garnier, Roland (World Scientific Publishing Company, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In this contribution a discussion is presented on the development of self-organized coastal morphodynamic patterns which are due to the joint action of gradients in the depth-integrated concentration and the flow. This ...
