Bedform Dynamics and Stratigraphy Experimental Data

Ongoing experiments to develop and validate models for reconstructing paleohydraulics and sediment transport from sandy fluvial cross set strata. Experiments are being conducted in the University of Wyoming Water Resources Facility's 7.3-meter recirculating flume channel.

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.
