An analytical and experimental study of boundary gravity currents propagating through a two-layer stratified ambient of finite vertical extent is presented. The theoretical discussion considers slumping, supercritical gravity currents, i.e. those that generate an interfacial disturbance whose...
Buoyancy driven flow between two finite zones containing fluid of slightly different density is investigated. Two zones separated by (i) a single common doorway, and, (ii) top and bottom vents. In the former case, a two-layer exchange flow develops once the barrier is removed. In the zone that...
Bottom propagating gravity currents resulting from full- and partial-depth lock-release experiments are investigated as they propagate up a rising slope in uniform and two-layer stratified ambients. In the case of uniform ambients, the gravity current front decelerates in a nearly uniform...
