On Bedform Growth and Nonequilibrium Sediment Transport
Starting from the model proposed by the authors to analyze the time-evolution of bedforms growing on the surface of an initially flat sand bed, the present study explores associated features of the bedform growth processes, including (i) mechanisms of growth, (ii) evolution of the bedform-induced drag, (iii) transition to antidunes, and (iv) non-equilibrium bedload sediment transport.
