Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling


A set of experiments was conducted to test T Green's criterion for the existence of double-diffusive convective motions at an originally sharp, horizontal interface separating upper, less-dense turbid water from lower, more-dense clear water. The results are discussed.
