The surface profile of water waves propagating in shoaling water approaches the solitary waveform before wave breaking. The effect of the high non-linearity of solitary waves may be very significant on bed forms induced in the nearshore zone. In this study, experiments on bed form generation beneath solitary waves are carried out in a 10-m-long flume used in resonant mode. Solitary waves are generated in shallow water on the background of a standing harmonic wave. One solitary wave (soliton) propagates in…
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.
