Instrumentation Carriage for Research on Water Flume

Sponsored by The Center for Ecohydraulics Research


The Center for Ecohydraulics Research (CER) is the latest addition to the IWC and has recently completed the construction of an inclined sediment flume. This flume is used to simulate the flow conditions in mountainous streams in order to study the links between physical processes and ecological responses in the system. The data gathered will be used to help regulate flow conditions in the field to better suit each stream and ensure its overall health.
