Abstract:
TDB-13-1: Fan-delta experiment performed in Tulane University Delta Basin. Experiment evolved under constant forcings of water (0.17 l/s), sediment (0.00017 l/s), and sea-level rise rate (0.25 mm/hr). Experiment run time was 1000 hr. Experiment was divided into 2 stages. The first stage used a weakly cohesive sediment while the second stage used a moderately cohesive sediment. Both sediment mixtures had wide grain size distributions with a median diameter of 65 microns. Experiment performed to explore autogenic sediment transport and stratigraphy with topography monitored every 1 hour of run time.

Abstract:
TDB-14-2: Fan-delta experiment performed in Tulane University Delta Basin. Experiment evolved under constant forcings of water (0.17 l/s), sediment (0.00017 l/s), and long term sea-level rise rate (0.25 mm/hr). Experiment run time was 1170 hr. Experiment used a strongly cohesive sediment that had a wide grain size distribution with a median diameter of 65 microns. Superimposed on the long term sea-level rise were sea-level cycles. The experiment was split into 2 stages. The first stage had sea-level cycles with periods of 24.5 hrs and amplitudes of 6.125 mm. The second stage had sea-level cycles with periods of 24.5 hrs and amplitudes of 3.06 mm. Experiment performed to explore interaction of autogenic sediment transport with sea-level cycles and resulting stratigraphy with topography monitored every 1 hour of run time.

Project Space: 2014 Backward-Facing Step Experiments

Published Dataset: http://doi.org/10.5967/M0TB150B

Abstract:
This dataset includes data from flume experiments run in 2014 at Arizona State University investigating bedload transport and turbulent structures downstream of a 3.81 cm backward-facing step. Two high-speed cameras captured bedload motion and motion of neutrally buoyant particles in the flow at 9 different distance downstream of the backward-facing step. Bedload transport data were collected using manual particle tracking techniques on the bedload images. Neutrally buoyant particle images were run through Particle Image Velocimetry algorithms to generate a two-dimensional field of fluid velocity vectors. Acoustic Doppler Velocimetry data were also recorded to refine fluid velocity measurements.

Data included herein:
(1) Raw bedload images (Sed_raw.zip & sed130.zip)
(2) Raw PIV images (PIV_all.zip)
(3) Bedload transport .csv files (Bedload_Flux_AllRuns.xlsx)
(4) Bedload time series (both downstream [DS] and cross-stream [CS]) .csv files
(5) Bedload Tracking Videos
(6) ADV files (ADV.zip)
(7) Bedload Tracking .csv files (Sediment_Tracking.zip)

Title: Sand on Salt - dune subsidence into a mobile substrate (PDMS)

Abstract:
This collection contains time-lapse photographs from experiments conducted by A. Piliouras and W. Kim, the results of which are published in Piliouras et al., (2014) in Lithosphere: http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/L323.1. More detailed methodologies can be found in the manuscript.

Seismic data from the Gulf of Mexico showed evidence of large lenticular sand bodies (linear dunes) partially subsided into the underlying Louann salt. The dunes were preserved after a marine transgression, and they had variable preserved topographies. We performed experiments to determine what controlled dune subsidence rates and the amount of subsidence, such that we might produce variable subsided dune topographies. The dune here is intended to be a cross section through a linear dune, so it is essentially a triangular pile of sand (silica) deposited relatively instantaneously on top of PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane), which we use as a proxy for salt (see references within Piliouras et al., (2014)). Run 1 has a sand to salt thickness ratio of 1 (sand thickness = salt thickness = 14.5 cm), while Run 2 has a ratio of 0.5 (sand thickness = 7.5 cm, salt thickness = 14.5 cm). Here we supply the original time lapse images and corresponding movies, as well as images corrected for camera lens distortion. Run 1 time lapse photos were every 5 minutes, and Run 2 time lapse photos were every 3 minutes. The lens corrected photos have 1 pixel = 1 mm. Flume dimensions can be found in the manuscript listed above to resize and/or process the raw photos.

The data are separated as follows:
00-profiles: Water surface and bed elevation profiles.
01-sonar data: Instantaneous realizations of bed elevation fluctuations captured by JSR ultrasonic probes.
02-media: collection of pictures, time-lapses and movies corresponding to the experiments.

Data are divided by flow rate (i.e., 20 l/s, 30 l/s), by feed rate (e.g., 1.5 kg/min, 16 kg/min) and by experiment type (i.e. equilibrium or aggradational runs.

Abstract:
This collection contains the photographs and the topographic scans of the experiments published in Bufe A., Paola C., Burbank D.W., 2016. Fluvial bevelling of topography controlled by lateral channel mobility and uplift rate. Nature Geoscience., 9(9), 706-710, doi:10.1038/ngeo2773.

For each experiment photographs were taken at regular intervals with a 10.5-mm, f/2.8 fisheye lens mounted on a DSLR camera. Fisheye distortion was removed using the inbuilt lens correction in Photoshop CS6 and were tilted such that the average slope of the alluvial fan is horizontal. Photos taken while the water was not running or when the dye feed was interrupted were not used. Moreover, for Run 4 only photographs from the first 25 h of runtime were processed and uploaded to the repository. All raw unprocessed images can be obtained upon request.

Topographic data of the basin were acquired using a custom built laser scanner that was programmed to cover the entire basin except for its upper ~5% (~25 cm), in six swaths. The scans are provided as .dat file and have 4672 by 3001 mm2 sized pixels.

To open the datafile in MATLAB :

id=fopen(‘filename’,'r')

A=fread(id,[4672 3001],'float');

fclose(id);

The Metadata for the experiments is summarized in an excel spreadsheet. For each run there are entries about the input parameters as well as the timing of uplift events and the timing of topographic scans.

In addition, timelapse videos of each run are included. For each run, the frame rate is 24 frames per second. With 1 minute between each picture, there are 24 min of real time in one second of the video.
