Sediment Transport Movies
This site features a collection of 25 freely downloadable brief movies that demonstrate different types of sediment transfer processes in a variety of environments. Videos present both live and laboratory-created conditions and events such as turbidity currents, debris flows, tidal fluctuations, and the formation of dunes and ripples. For example, two live videos by Canadian sedimentologist Gerard Middleton show the effects of tidal processes at the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia. There are also four videos which capture the growth of mineral crystals. Text to accompany the videos can be downloaded as a PDF file by clicking the appropriate link.
