Tilt current meters (TCMs), produced by Lowell Instruments, are used extensively by Rice Sedimentology to characterize flow velocity at several locations on the Huanghe delta. Here, Lowell Instruments highlights the utility of TCMs for the project.
Chenliang Wu is leading the 2018 field campaign in the Western Irish Namurian Basin to assess paleodynamics recorded in deltaic cyclothems.
Rice University and Boston College conducted a winter survey of the Huanghe delta in China. The group deployed instruments to measure sediment transport on the delta topset as well as within the shallow Bohai Sea.
The EPSP Young Researcher Spotlight is meant to highlight exciting new science coming from students and postdocs. Here, PhD candidate Brandee Carlson describes her research on the Yellow River delta, China. Link: https://epsp.agu.org/young-researcher-spotlight/
Himalayan waste management: Sea-level responses to sediment erosion and deposition
The speakers will be Proteek Chowdhury, Damanveer Grewal, and Jia Shi; these talks will share the theme of "Earth's Interior": Effect of sulfate on the liquidus and sulfur concentration at anhydrite saturation (SCAS) of hydrous basalt at subduction zones Proteek Chowdhury …
Professor Jeffrey Nittrouer will lead field trips to the Mississippi River delta the Saturdays prior to and following the Fall 2017 AGU meeting in New Orleans. We will travel South Pass by boat, stopping at points of interest along the…

Sedimentary dispersal systems with fine-grained beds are common, yet the physics of sediment movement within them remains poorly constrained. We analyze sediment transport data for the best-documented, fine-grained river worldwide, the Huanghe (Yellow River) of China, where sediment flux is…
