SAFL density current basin

Basin for fluvial sediment transport experiments, including density currents. Two slope breaks in the basin favor sediment deposition, with a maximum accomodation space of approximately 5 cm. The bed slope is adjustable. Pumps are used to supply inflow and to control the water level.

Data acquisition options include overheard photos and topographic scanning.

Size: 4.0 m x 1.0 m x 0.5 m (length, width, height)
