Flow-separation berms downstream of a hydraulic jump in a bedrock channel

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The purpose of this paper is to report the first direct observation of the phenomenon of gravel berm formation, downstream of a hydraulic jump. As the observations were fortuitous, detailed measurements of hydraulic conditions were not possible but estimates were obtained. These observations are compared with laboratory experiments and theory. The deposits have significance in constraining flood palaeoflow reconstructions as the presence of berms determines the former location of hydraulic jumps
