Time evolving bed shear stress due the passage of gravity currents estimated with ADVP velocity measurements

Instantaneous longitudinal velocity fields are derived from the velocity measurements collected with the ADVP. Detailed velocity profiles are the base for the estimation of the bottom shear stress through the logarithmic law of the wall. Bottom shear stress is linked to the erosive and depositive capacity of the gravity current.
