Vertessy, Robert A


This thesis compares the morphodynamic behaviour of the South Alligator, Daly and Adelaide rivers in far north Northern Territory, Australia. These three macrotidal rivers have formed under similar boundary conditions of climate and sea level rise, but exhibit dissimilar plan and cross-sectional morphometries, hydrodynamic behaviour, bed sediment characteristics and sediment transport regimes. The rivers under consideration are large, funnel-shaped, meandering estuaries which ...[Show more]
