  • Abstract In macrotidal estuaries, a tidal bore may form during spring tide conditions when the flood tide is confined to a narrow channel. Most field occurrences showed well-defined undulations behind the leading wave, that is, an undular bore process. Herein, detailed free-surface and turbulence measurements were performed beneath undular bore fronts using side-looking acoustic Doppler velocimetry and nonintrusive free-surface measurement devices in a laboratory channel. Undular bores were… CONTINUE READING
