Minibasin Formation Due to Sediment Loading Over a Mobile Substrate

3D experiments examining the feedback between sediment loading by turbidite deposition and flow of a mobile substrate due to an unequally distributed sediment load that gives rise to minibasin formation.

The Progradation of a Delta on a Mobile Substrate: Experiment

We conducted a series of experiments at the University of Texas at Austin to discover the effect of a mobile substrate on an evolving delta. All of the runs had constant sediment supply, water supply, and base level, but varied mobile substrate thicknesses.
