2015 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
James L. Best mostly deals with Turbulence, Geomorphology, Sediment transport, Bedform and Flow. His research integrates issues of Geotechnical engineering and Flow velocity in his study of Turbulence. His Geomorphology research integrates issues from Secondary circulation and Flume.
His study in Sediment transport is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hydrology and Secondary flow. His study focuses on the intersection of Bedform and fields such as Mean flow with connections in the field of Shear stress. James L. Best has researched Sediment in several fields, including Sand dune stabilization and Fluvial.
His primary areas of study are Geomorphology, Turbulence, Hydrology, Bedform and Mechanics. His research on Geomorphology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Flow. His studies in Hydrology integrate themes in fields like Acoustic Doppler current profiler and Sediment.
James L. Best has included themes like Geotechnical engineering and Flume in his Bedform study. His Alluvium research focuses on Sedimentary rock and how it relates to Sedimentary depositional environment. James L. Best interconnects Sand dune stabilization and Flow velocity in the investigation of issues within Sediment transport.
James L. Best mainly investigates Hydrology, Mechanics, Turbulence, Geomorphology and Bedform. His Hydrology research includes themes of Mekong river, Sediment and Fluvial. His work in Mechanics addresses issues such as Barchan, which are connected to fields such as Refractive index.
His work carried out in the field of Turbulence brings together such families of science as Structure and Surface finish. James L. Best combines subjects such as Floodplain and Hydrograph with his study of Geomorphology. His Bedform research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Computational fluid dynamics and Flume.
His main research concerns Sediment transport, Turbulence, Hydrology, Geomorphology and Fluvial. His Turbulence study is related to the wider topic of Mechanics. His Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Sediment and Satellite imagery.
His specific area of interest is Geomorphology, where James L. Best studies Bedform. James L. Best works mostly in the field of Bedform, limiting it down to concerns involving Alluvium and, occasionally, Thalweg and Flow velocity. His research in Fluvial tackles topics such as Beach morphodynamics which are related to areas like Channel, Landform and Sink.
