Subaqueous and subaerial currents with net deposition

Subaqueous and subaerial currents with net deposition

Author:

These experiments use an inflow to transport sediment and build sedimentary deposits. Under the subaqeuous basin condition, the basin is filled with fresh water and a density current is generated using saline solution. Under the subaerial basin condition, fresh water is supplied to the basin.
