Knowledge of migration rates of bedforms provides an indirect indication of the behavior of tidally averaged bottom currents, enables optimization of hydrographic survey frequency and may enable calculation of bedload transport rate. To measure bedform migration rate, we test the use of spatial correlation as a measurement method, which quantifies and locates a region of maximum similarity between two spatial variables. For the latter, we use consecutive eight-bit images of spatial gradient, derived from …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
