Emriver Em4 coded media and CRP updates.

Draft, delta building and stratigraphy, Emriver Em4 model. from Steve Gough on Vimeo. We are moving fast with our Em4 work, partly in preparation for GSA in Minneapolis, where I’ll be giving a talk about use of color coded by size (CCS) media and also Close...

Martian water in Carbondale, Illinois.

Martian water in Carbondale, Illinois.

McEwen et al.’s Science paper on Martian water yesterday is exciting stuff! Especially for us, because our models can simulate fluvial geomorphology on Mars.  The plastic media we use is particularly good at forming sapping channels, which are groundwater-driven...

Normal noises at LRRD.

Normal noises at LRRD.

We’ve been crazy busy at LRRD for the last few months.  I used what little blogging time I had to cover the lower Mississippi floods, and haven’t reported the cool things we’ve been up to.  Here are a few photos. We’ve done a lot of pro bono...

GSA Denver day one.

GSA Denver day one.

A day I’ll always remember.  Kate, Lily, and I worked very hard this morning to get everything in its final place, and a year’s worth of planning came to fruition. We welcomed hundreds of delighted visitors from many countries tonight–here are a few...

Modeling media research–the fine color coded fraction.

Modeling media research–the fine color coded fraction.

We’re continuing our research on low density modeling media.  The mix we usually use tapers out at around 0.5mm on the fine end, but clearly adding smaller particles has a big effect on behavior in movable bed models.  This fraction fills the interstitial spaces...
