The Ecological Fluid Dynamics Laboratory specializes in the use of laser-based instrumentation to quantify and understand fluid flow processes associated with ecological processes in water and air. We have a particular interest in understanding how complex flows transport and mix biologically relevant entities.
Benthic Turbulence Flume
The laboratory houses a number of fluid flow facilities. The Benthic Turbulence Flume is the largest, at 15 m in length and holding 25,000 liters of water.
