These experiments were conducted in St. Anthony Fall Laboratory (SAFL) Delta Basin. This is a fixed based basin (5 m wide x 5 m long x 0.5 m deep) that is fed sediment and water from an input source to create model deltas. Sea-level adjustment via relative sea-level rise and tidal cycles is available in this facility and was in fact used for these experiments. This facility is able to collect data via an overhead DSLR camera (which made the time-lapse videos themselves) and a digital line scan camera capable of making digital elevation models with sub-millimeter accuracy.
