Context

In den angesprochenen Abbildungen wird der Einfluss verschiedener Sohlrauheiten im Modell (0,05 und 25 mm) sowie der Vergleich mit Messergebnissen der Dauermessstation MS02 dargestellt.
In den Abbildungen sind jeweils drei Zeitreihen (farbige Kurven) dargestellt:
Messergebnisse (schwarz), Modell mit 0,05 mm Sohlrauheit (rot) und mit 25 mm Sohlrauheit (blau).
Abbildungen 0-45 (hier dargestellt in Abbildung 16) und 0-47 (hier dargestellt in Abbildung 17) zeigen Ergebnisse für die Strömungsgeschwindigkeit, wobei in Abbildung 16 auch die zugehörige Strömungsrichtung dargestellt wird.

bed roughness
Explanation:
E.g. from https://link.springer.com/10.1007/978-90-481-2642-2_40 :
Bed roughness develops due to stream surface relief at the base of a flowing fluid and it exerts frictional effect on the flow in the stream. Bed roughness is considered to be smooth or rough depending on whether sediment particles project through the viscous sublayer at the base of the flow.
