GSA 2013, Day ??

It's Tuesday, I think. Yes, looking at the computer's calendar, it's definitely Tuesday. Yesterday I pulled out my department's high speed camera and grabbed some footage of sediment being transported within the flume designed and built by LRR&D. Here's some bed and suspended load transport for your viewing enjoyment:
