Es ist allgemein bekannt, dab Wasserlauie die Tendenz haben , sich in Schlangelllinien zu krfimmen, s tat t der Richtung des gr6Bten Gef~iltes des Gel~indes zu folgen. Ferner ist den Geographen wohlbekannt, dab die Ftfisse der n6rdlichen Erdh~Ifte die Tendenz haben, vorwiegend auf der rechtell Seite zu erodieren; Fltisse auf der Siidh~ilfte verhalten sich umgekehrt (BAzRsches Gesetz). Versnche zur Erkl~irullg dieser Erseheinnngen liegen in groBer Zahl vor, und ich bin nieht sicher, ob dem…

In the last few decades cooperation among fluid dynamicists and geomorphologists has allowed the construction of a rational framework for the quantitative understanding of several geomorphologic
The influence of the Coriolis force on the rivers in Hungarian geoscience
The deflective effect of the Coriolis force on the rivers can be regarded as a proven fact. Below, it will be demonstrated how this effect is realised and how it causes systematic migration of linear
Hans Albert Einstein: Innovation and Compromise in Formulating Sediment Transport by Rivers
This paper is written to mark the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Hans Albert Einstein (1904–1973). It casts his career as that of the archetypal researcher protagonist determined to master
A review of the contributions of Albert Einstein to Earth Sciences—in commemoration of the World Year of Physics
It is proposed that the year 2005 serve, rather than to confine his universal figure within a specific scientific area, to broaden it for a better appreciation of this brilliant scientist in all of his dimensions.
Fluvial and submarine morphodynamics of laminar and near‐laminar flows: a synthesis
The interaction of flow with an erodible bed in alluvial rivers and deep‐sea channels gives rise to a wide range of self‐formed morphologies, including channels, ripples, dunes, antidunes, alternate
The Büyük Menderes River: Origin of Meandering Phenomenon
The Buyuk Menderes River is the longest river that discharges into the Aegean Sea, with a length of 615 km. It is one of the main rivers dominating in the geomorphology of western Turkey, with its
From straight to deeply incised meandering channels: Slope impact on sinuosity of confined streams
Meandering channels and valleys are dominant landscape features on Earth. Their morphology and remnants potentially indicate past base‐level fluctuations and changing regional slopes. The prevailing
Times Associated With Source-to-Sink Propagation of Environmental Signals During Landscape Transience
Sediment archives in the terrestrial and marine realm are regularly analyzed to infer changes in climate, tectonic, or anthropogenic boundary conditions of the past. However, contradictory
Experimental and numerical evidence for intrinsic nonmigrating bars in alluvial channels
Alternate bars in straight alluvial channels are migrating or nonmigrating. The currently accepted view is that they are nonmigrating if the width‐to‐depth ratio is at the value of resonance or if
