Experimental alluvial fan evolution: Channel dynamics, slope controls, and shoreline growth
We describe the growth of a series of experimental alluvial fans composed of a noncohesive grain mixture bimodal in size and density. We impose conditions that simulate a gravel/sand fan prograding into a static basin with constant water and sediment influx, and the resulting fans display realistic channelization and avulsion dynamics. Collected at the Penn Sediment Dynamics Laboratory.
