We ran a set of five experiments at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory in Minneapolis, Minnesota to study how the dynamics of a bifurcation are affected by the downstream boundary (deposition vs. bypass). These data accompany our publication in Earth Surface Dynamics.
Please see readme.txt for detailed documentation. In this dataset, we provide time series of water and sediment flux through each branch of the bifurcation, time series of front positions, topographic scans of water and bed surface elevations, and overhead images. For completeness, both raw and processed versions of the data are available, as well as the processing scripts/data needed to convert between them.
