The shape of alluvial estuaries

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific


Nature manifests itself in sometimes surprisingly simple patterns, even though we know that the underlying coupled equations are complex and highly non-linear.
Alluvial estuaries, that are the result of interacting forces of nature within a mobile sedimentary medium, are a clear manifestation of such patterns. But what constrains
the formation of shape? Which physical laws are behind it? The author does not have the answers, but raises some pertinent questions.
