intro story Lake


Lakes and reservoirs are important resources for communities around the globe. They provide food, drinking and irrigation water and can also offer spots for recreation. Under certain conditions lakes can also represent a threat for local communities, such as flooding or limnic eruptions. The ecological state of shallow lakes may be hampered by suspended sediments due to wind driven currents and waves. In deep lakes, stratification can cause undesirable anoxic conditions in the deeper areas. Understanding these systems is crucial to enable a sound management of these water bodies.

Wave - Rock out crops

Padawan Posts: 35 Join Date: 7/31/12 Recent Posts
Hello All,


I would like to know if any one has attempted breaking and reflection near rock outcrops in wave model.

I'm aware of alternatives of non erosive bed in flow and couple with wave (but leads to large velocities and excessive erosion at the rock foot in the flow)

Every advice is welcome.
