NIOZ racetrack sand-shell experiment, data belonging to the paper: Sediment shell-content diminishes current-driven sand ripple development and migration

  • Chiu H. Cheng (Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) (Creator)



Data collected from racetrack flume experiments conducted at NIOZ - Yerseke, the Netherlands. The experiment investigated the effect of shells within medium sand on ripple dynamics. Time-lapse photos, GoPro video footage and ADV measurements were taken from the two separate experiments: Constant flow experiment (6 treatments) and Acceleration (ACC; 11 treatments) flow experiment.
