Contaminants, nutrients and sediment particles flow into inland and coastal water bodies often forming turbulent jets. The aim of the present research is to improve our capability to describe how jets interact with the environment they discharge into, providing useful insights for possible mitigation of undesired and harmful impacts. Here, we focus on the case of a jet interacting with an obstructed flow under the effect of the Coriolis force as is often the case with large scale rivers discharging into the sea in vegetated environments.

Abstract

Contaminants, nutrients and sediment particles flow into inland and coastal water bodies often forming turbulent jets. The aim of the present research is to improve our capability to describe how jets interact with the environment they discharge into, providing useful insights for possible mitigation of undesired and harmful impacts. Here, we focus on the case of a jet interacting with an obstructed flow under the effect of the Coriolis force as is often the case with large scale rivers discharging into the sea in vegetated environments.
