Resum
Density currents occur in lakes and sea environments when two masses of water interact giving rise to a relative movement between them. Depending on the initial and boundary conditions, turbulence associated with them is able to lift the sediment. This fact can be a problem in places where the sediment is contaminated due to industrial activities. In 2001, a pollution episode occurred in the Flix reservoir (Tarragona, Spain), in which thousands of fish died and the water supply of cities such as...
