Data & Software

Beta version of Bed forms analysis toolkit for multidimensional modeling (Bedforms-ATM). The software comprises the following applications:

  1. Wavelets analysis of bedforms
  2. Power Hovmoller of a bedform plot
  3. A scale-based discrimination of bedforms

A quick view of the capabilities of Bedforms-ATM can be seen in the following video:

The software is based on Gutierrez, R. R., J. D. Abad, D. R. Parsons, and J. L. Best (2013), Discrimination of bed form scales using robust spline filters and wavelet transforms: Methods and application to synthetic signals and bed forms of the Río Paraná, Argentina, J. Geophys. Res. Earth Surf., 118, 1400–1418, doi:10.1002/jgrf.20102.

In order to collect any software bug, the first release containS MATLAB p-code files. They run as m-files do though they cannot be edited. The MATLAB p-files and the supporting documentation of Bedforms-ATM can be obtained from the following link:
