UPGRADES – Modular options that can be added at any time.
- Color-coded-by-size modeling media
- Research instruments
- Tilting Base
– Upgrade to a single-axis tilt or dual-axis tilt base to simulate river processes on a greater variety of landscapes. The tilting bases allow rapid changes in river valley slope and flow velocity which expand the capabilities of our models, allowing study of tectonic controls on river form, sedimentology, and delta geomorphology.
– Single tilt allows modification of the slope. Dual tilt allows modification of the slope and roll.
– Tilting is controlled by hand cranks.
See the Applications for Science and Teaching pages for examples of how to use the Em3.
