Abstract

Contaminants, nutrients and sediment particles flow into inland and coastal water bodies often forming turbulent jets. The aim of the present project was to improve our capability to describe how jets interact with the environment in which they discharge, providing useful insights for possible mitigation of undesired and harmful impacts. We focus on the case of a jet interacting with porous obstructions, mimicking rigid vegetation or marine farms, under the effect of the Coriolis force, as is often the case with large scale rivers discharging into the sea. The experiments were carried out in the large scale facility 'Coriolis Platform' at LEGI Grenoble (FR), in the frame of the project "H+-CNRS-06-JEVERB" which received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 654110, HYDRALAB+.
