The drip box was built in 2014 to drive rainsplash transport in the existing eXperimental Landscape Evolution (XLE) facility at St. Anthony Falls Laboratory.
The Experimental Landscape Evolution (XLE) facility is housed at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota.

We present the results of an experimental study of topography dynamics under conditions of constant precipitation and uplift rate. The experiment is designed to develop a complete drainage network by the growth and propagation of erosion instabilities in response to tectonic perturbations. The quantitative analysis of topographic evolution is made possible by using telemetric lasers that perform elevation measurements at an excellent level of precision.
