Part of the Lecture Notes on Coastal and Estuarine Studies book series (COASTAL, volume 18)


1) IR f T is the ratio between the gain in potential as well as turbulent kinetic energy due to the entrained mass and the energy available for the turbulence, i.e. the production, corrected for the rate of change of the turbulent kinetic energy of the turbulent body.
