Ideal for precision sediment transport research with available placement for high-speed imagery cameras, laser sheet for PIV measurements, and ADV.
Size: 8.5m x 0.3m
- Glass observation walls.
- Plexiglass ‘sled’ window placed on surface- provides clear view of the bed, free of distortion created by light refraction in the water surface.
- False floor allows for instruments to enter from beneath the floor bed
The use of a moored (sitting on the bottom) upward-looking acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) allows to capture hydrodynamics of water column above the instrument. It is also possible to couple those profiles with variations in water depth.
