Talk to IU students and faculty and learn how rivers work. Use our stream table to build and remove dams, alter river banks, input sediment, and see how the river responds. Watch demonstrations in our sediment flume to get an up close view of how water and sediment interact. Why do ripples form on the beach? Why are river cobbles rounded? How much sand and gravel do rivers actually move? This unique view of a river will help to answer all of these questions and more!
