Bedforms Analysis Toolkit for Multiscale Modeling (Bedforms-ATM) is an open source MATLAB software which is aimed to standardize the analysis of variability of bed forms. Bedforms-ATM can be downloaded from the following link:
Two types of data accompany Bedforms-ATM, namely: [1] Bed form data from the Parana River (Argentina), which comprises 150 bed form profiles, and [2] Synthetic bed form fields for both rectangular and curved bed form fields. This contribution comprises the latter data, which includes data from both curved plots and a rectangular plots.
The synthetic bed forms fields were built by using the mathematical definitions presented by Gutierrez et al, 2013 and Gutierrez & Abad, 2014. Curved bed form fields comprise stretches having sinuosities of 1.1, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5.
The largest file size (> 100MB) corresponds to the synthetic rectangular bed form field.
