Abstract

In the last few decades extensive studies focusing on both qualitative and quantitative descriptions of the Reynolds stress within aquatic canopies have been carried out. Although these studies have advanced our knowledge of mechanics of flow-vegetation interactions, further research in this area is still required. In particular, there is a need for development of new simple physically-based relationships describing the Reynolds stress profiles within submerged vegetation canopies. This paper addresses this issue and proposes a physically justified formulation for the Reynolds stress profile within the canopy region.
