Additional Physical Format: Online version: McKee, Edwin D. (Edwin Dinwiddie), Report on studies of stratification in modern sediments and in laboratory experiments. Large scale experiments required the resources of a laboratory with the latest technology.

Having read their reports on sedimentology, I contacted Colorado State University in the USA. This led to a series of experiments conducted in their modern hydraulics laboratory at Fort Collins. Pierre Julien, a sedimentologist, was in charge of the Author: GUY BERTHAULT.

Hoskin1 has read the reports of my first sedimentation experiments on the study of lamination,2, 3 and of those with my colleague Pièrre Julien in the United States on the study of stratification.4 He has also seen the video Drama in the Rocks5 in which he considers that I have extrapolated inappropriately the mechanism shown by our experiments for the formation of fossil-bearing rocks during.

Although different authors defined the stability fields of bed forms with reference to different parameters, scanning of the available hydrodynamic parameters reveals a direct relation between bed form geometry and the Froude number (F) of the flow, which is given by F = U ¯ g h, where U ¯ is the mean (depth-average) flow velocity, h is the hydraulic radius, and g is the acceleration due to Author: P.

Experiments in stratification were conducted in the Fort Collins hydraulics laboratory of the Colorado State University by the professor of hydraulics and sedimentology Pierre Julien. With respect to the studies on the instability of the seabed under wave action, especially in the subaqueous Yellow River Delta, plenty of field surveys, numerical analyses, laboratory tests, and in situ observation studies have been carried out [16,17,18,19,20,21].

Their results showed an average decrease of 64 percent in survival rates with a range of 80 percent to 16 percent. Subsequent studies were modeled after this laboratory experiment with very similar results.

The nineteen-fifties brought more experiments on survival rates. Land-use effects were being considered with an emphasis on logging. Experiments were conducted at the Eursotank Flume Laboratory (Utrecht University) using a flume (12 m long, 048 m wide and 06 m deep) in which water and sediment were both recirculated.

The flume was filled with ca 15 m 3 of sediment, resulting in a sedimentary bed of ca 02 m by: Abstract. A laboratory seawater flume was designed and constructed for\ud experimental studies of the erosion characteristics of cohesive sediments.\ud The upright orientation of the flume and the use of an impeller drive system\ud reduced the amount of cross stream flow over the test bed area and allowed\ud the flow to be accurately controlled and replicated on separate flume runs.\ud The Author: Paul Michael.

Wing. Since the report of Evans, and especially in recent years, a number of localized studies of calcareous eolianites have been made in various parts of the world — Bermuda, Bahamas, Yucatan, the Mediterranean coast and elsewhere.

In most cases, these studies have served to confirm the original ideas concerning requisite conditions for development. Introduction. In their review of internal waves, Pomar et al. (, p) state that “The aim of this study is to show the potential importance of internal waves in shaping the sedimentary record in coastal- and open ocean settings, as well as in lakes, despite that sedimentologists seldom consider them.”Although this article is timely for drawing attention to this often neglected Cited by: The conclusions drawn from the sedimentation experiments presented on the video Drama in the Rocks are reiterated and defended.

The experiments invalidate the identification of superposed rock strata with successive sedimentary layers and thus also the principles of superposition and continuity upon which the geological time-scale was founded. Coastal sediments are rapidly becoming rare materials and this leaves many coastal systems in a degraded state.

The modeling needed to evaluate the existing state and possible measures, e.g. to combat erosion or to restore environments such as mangroves and coral reefs are explored and the state of the art and remaining knowledge gaps are addressed. Washington, DC: The National Academies Press.

doi: / In laboratory experiments, dispersant components (including the solvents and surfactants) degrade rapidly, within hours to days. In field conditions, the few studies on the effects of dilution on dispersant fate and transport have shown that concentrations of dispersants.

Early laboratory experiments of mud erosion by waves considered forcing periods in a range of 1–2 s, using kaolinite and estuarial-mud beds with consolidation times in a range of 2 to 15 days.

Wave-induced bed shear stresses were relatively low (– Pa) and created thin (–1 cm) fluid mud layers of relatively constant concentration Cited by: 2.

Malarkodi, Gerta Keller, A. Reddy and B. Jaiprakash (eds). Studies of its primary structures, and of the direction of sand transport, based on statistical measurements of foreset dip directions, have contributed new data on its genesis. By far the most common structure in Nubian-type sandstone is a medium-scale planar-type cross stratification in which sets of evenly dipping cross beds are bounded by Cited by: In selecting suitable procedures for the laboratory investigation of recent sediments, the first step suggested is that of examining conditions in the geologic environment that influence sediment properties.

This step is illustrated by reference to the geologic history and physical features of a British Columbia fiord as a basis for assessing environmental conditions affecting the fiord.

Modern, laboratory-based studies have some distinct advantages over plant-based research. Whilst earlier laboratory studies in the s and s provided generic tolerance data to various stressors, the simulation experiments (PPS, EMU, see Sections and respectively) were able to realistically replicate true entrainment conditions.

The experiments we report here were conducted at the hydraulic laboratory of St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud, Minnesota, in a flume 7 m long, m wide, m deep.

The world’s deltas, as the interface between the land and the ocean, nourish half a billion people worldwide and play a key role in global ecosystem by providing fertile soil and abundant natural resources (Syvitski ).As natural recorders of depositional conditions, deltas are sensitive to both human activity (e.g., damming, irrigation, water, oil, and gas mining) and Author: Xiaolei Liu, Shuyu Zhang, Jiewen Zheng, Hong Zhang, Yonggang Jia.

Nitrate uptake by benthic algae appears to account for a small portion of the NO3- removal. Laboratory experiments suggest that most of the nitrate disappearance from the river reaches is caused by bacterial denitrification and nitrate reduction in stream sediments.

Mound Key, like other archaeological sites along the southwest Gulf Coast, is a large expanse of shell and other anthropogenic sediments.

The challenges that these sites pose are largely due to the size and areal extent of the deposits, some of which begin up to a meter Cited by: 1.
