Abstract
The morphology, flow and process mechanics of river dunes has attracted
much interest over many years. However, many of these studies have
concentrated on investigating two-dimensional (213) bed features and
their associated flow structures and bed stress distributions. This
morphological simplification imposes inherent limitations on our
interpretation and understanding of dune form and flow dynamics, as
natural dunes are invariably three-dimensional (313) with an associated
fully 3D flow structure. For example, studies over 2D forms neglect the
significant effect that lateral flow and secondary circulation may have
on the flow structure and thus dune morphology. This paper details a
field investigation of the interactions between the 3D morphology, 3D
turbulent flow structure and suspended sediment movement over large
alluvial sand dunes in the Rio Parana, NE Argentina. Fixed point and
moving vessel surveys enabled the links between three-dimensionality,
large-scale turbulence and sediment suspension over the dunes to be
investigated.
