Abstract

In this contribution, we demonstrate that in general the assumption of quasi-2D flow in a shallow fluid layer is questionable, and discuss the origin of the 3D flow in the shallow fluid layer. In particular, these secondary flows are not driven by bottom friction, as usually anticipated, but by flow confinement only.
