Sediment Experimentalist Network

The Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) aims to to facilitate broad collaborations within the Earth-surface community to determine, address, and promote responses to our needs as scientists and educators for best practices in experimental methods and in the storage, archiving, and dissemination of experimental data.

The Project Space team has made the following datasets and collections publicly available. You must be a logged-in member of the Project Space to access all the datasets and collections.

Aeolian saltation fieldwork 30-minute wind and saltation values

Excel spreadsheet (.XLSX) containing 30-minute values for shear velocity, shear stress, wind direction, stability parameter, saltation layer height, total saltation flux, saltation detection frequency, and associated uncertainties for most of these values for field deployments at Jericoacoara (Brazil), Rancho Guadalupe (California), and Oceano (California).

Experimental Meandering Video

This video is a series of overhead images taken of an experiment with constant discharge and sediment supply. Frames are 30 minutes apart, Flow is from left to right. The white material is a lightweight plastic, the brownish material is sand, and the green colors are alfalfa sprouts.

TDB_14_1

TDB-14-1: 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 long term sea-level rise rate (0.25 mm/hr). Experiment run time was 630 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 with periods of 98 hrs and amplitudes of 24.5 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.

TDB-10-2: Fan-delta experiment performed in Tulane University Delta Basin. Experiment evolved under constant forcings of water (0.902 l/s), sediment (0.022 l/s), and sea-level rise rate 10 mm/hr). Experiment run time was 39.3 hr. Experiment used non-cohesive sediment that was 70% by volume well sorted quartz sand with a median diameter of 110 microns and 30% by volume crushed coal with a median diameter of 400 microns. Experiment performed to explore autogenic sediment transport and stratigraphy with topography monitored every 2 minutes of run time.

Experiment run time was 78.2 hr. Experiment used non-cohesive sediment that was 70% by volume well sorted quartz sand with a median diameter of 110 microns and 30% by volume crushed coal with a median diameter of 400 microns.

TDB_15_1

TDB-15-1: 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 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 98 hrs and amplitudes of 3.06 mm. The second stage had sea-level cycles with periods of 24.5 hrs and amplitudes of 12.25 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.
