The Caltech Earth Surface Dynamics Laboratory is a 4000 sq. ft. high-bay space designed to facilitate physical experiments and models to study the processes that erode, transport, and deposit sediment on the surface of the Earth and other planets. The lab is located on the main Caltech campus, a short walk from the GPS Division. It includes a state-of-the-art tilting flume (below) that we use to study mountain river channels, and a river-ocean facility that we use to study coastal rivers and deltas.
