Abstract: [1] The classical hydraulic jump, which is a hydraulic jump formed in a horizontal, smooth, and prismatic laboratory flume, has often been used for estimating hydraulic and morphologic characteristics of mountain river channels. However, most studies utilizing classical hydraulic jump relationships have neglected the role of aerated flows and jump types prevalent in natural systems. By developing a methodology to survey, digitize, and visualize air concentrations for jumps in bedrock rivers, we present new da…
