Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The data describes transverse concentrations of a neutrally buoyant solute across a shear layer in water past two measurement locations within a partially vegetated channel with emergent vegetation. It also describes accompanying transverse profiles of longitudinal velocity. Measurements were conducted in five types of vegetation, low-density artificial vegetation, high-density artificial vegetation, Carex Acutiformis, winter Typha Latifolia, and summer Typha Latifolia.
This data set is suitable for estimating transverse dispersion across a shear-layer. It accompanies the journal article submission entitled "A CFD-based mixing model for vegetated flows".
