Article OPEN
Herbert, Christopher; Alexander, Jan; Martinez De Alvaro, Maria;

Back-flow ripples are bedforms created within the lee-side eddy of a larger bedform with migration directions opposed or oblique to that of the host bedform. In the flume experiments described in this article, back-flow ripples formed in the trough downstream of a unit ... View more
