Dense Bottom Currents
A dense bottom current or a light roof current is the flow created by a source of mass, momentum, and buoyancy flowing into an ambient fluid in such a way that the flow is bounded by the fixed wall and the interface. The dense bottom currents and light roof currents are primarily driven by buoyancy forces.
