Mathematical modelling of dune formation

Abstract:

This study is concerned with the mathematical modelling of the formation and subsequent evolution of sand dunes, both beneath rivers (fluvial) and in deserts (Aeolian). Dunes are observed in the environment in many different shapes and sizes; we begin by discussing qualitatively how and why the different forms exist. The most important aspect of a successful model is the relationship between the bed shape and the shear stress that the flow exerts on the bed. We first discuss a simple model f...
