This page is under construction. Right now, I'm just putting up a few links for future reference.
I've compiled a bibliography of selected papers on downslope windstorm phenomena: [PDF].
Downslope windstorms are a seminal display of the power of the atmosphere. Several theories have been proposed to explain downslope windstorms, one of which is the hydraulic jump. Here are some links about undular bores and hydraulic jumps.
Gallery of Fluid Mechanics: Hydraulic Jumps and Bores a few pictures of hydraulic jumps in a sink, and a undular bore on the Dordogne River
Catalog of Bores Worldwide a very nice index of bore phenomenon all around the world
A Catalog of Asian bores includes tidaly-forced bores and wind-driven bores (e.g. Bay of Bengal)
Fascinating pictures of an apparent tidal bore the author of this page seems to be confused about where these pictures came from (even though he put copyright watermarks on them, hmmm . . .). At least some of these pictures are likely of the Qiantang tidal bore in China -- the world's largest regularly-occurring tidal bore.
A thesis on tidal bores a student in Denmark is doing a Masters thesis on tidal bores -- sounds anything but boring!
Movies and numerical simulations of bores from his thesis web site -- mainly on the Qiantang bore of China
An atmospheric undular bore this is a small write-up that I did for an undular bore off the coast of Massachusetts
Boreriders.com Some people have made a sport of riding tidal bores -- sounds dangerous
Another bore-surfing site more pictures of bore-surfing
Boulder windstorms lots of windstorm data from the Climate Diagnostics Center
