  author={Jonathan Nash and James N. Moum}

Observations of currents, hydrography, and turbulence provide unambiguous evidence for hydraulic control of flow over an isolated three-dimensional topographic feature on Oregon’s continental shelf. The flow becomes critical at the crest of the bank, forming a strong supercritical downslope flow in the lower layer. Farther downstream, internal hydraulic jumps form as the bottom flow becomes subcritical. As a consequence, turbulence is greatly enhanced in the bottom boundary layer, in the… CONTINUE READING
