Welcome 3rd day: Alteration of spreading processes in natural flows and interaction between waves and vegetation in coastal zones in times of climate change

12:00 - 13:00 CET

The lecture will highlight the effects of the variation of the vegetation density and characteristics, or obstacles, in jet-like flows and in some types of waves, using analytical models and laboratory experiments. In particular, the effects of the presence of obstacles will be highlighted in terms of variation of advective-diffusive processes, main fluid mechanics and turbulence quantities. Several cases will be analyzed, using experimental data from large laboratories of hydraulic physical models, including the LIC - Coastal Engineering Laboratory of the Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy). The analysis will also be extended to large scales, where the effects of the force of Coriolis are not negligible. Similar results will be highlighted for the case of interaction of waves and obstacles.
