2020-LEMAN : Flow and mixing processes in the plunging of a dense riverine inflow in a water body

A hyperpycnal river plunging into a lake generates complicated 3D flow patterns and various intermediate scale coherent structures. These coherent structures have their unique 3D shapes and make significant contribution on the mixing, entrainment and detrainment processes, which is important for sediment transport, contaminant spreading and near-shore ecology.
