IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

In nature, certain connected water bodies produce exchange gravimetric flows due to density differences, caused by variable concentrations of elements such as salt, sediment, or temperature. This study presents a brief description of these kinds of flows, including an experimental study of stratified exchange flows over a submarine sill. The hydrodynamic characterization has been developed using imaging analysis techniques and Particle Image Velocimetry in order to characterize the exchange gravimetric surface and the velocity fields. The results are compared with those obtained with a bidimensional numerical model that applies the finite volume method to the depth-averaged two-layer flow equations (García, 2005).
