The primary goals of the workshop are
- to convene participants to consider grand challenges in morphodynamics, geomorphology, and stratigraphy that can be addressed using physical experiments;
- to identify user requirements to achieve the grand challenges in terms of accessing experimental data and advanced experimental technologies;
- to generate, develop, and frame innovative ideas on community standards for data and metadata related to sediment experiments; and
- to identify needs and explore solutions for data storage and also cyberinfrastructure needs for data dissemination.
The workshop will include a live experiment in the University of Texas Sediment Transport and Earth-surface Processes (STEP) basin.
Invited Speakers include Gary Parker, Ron Steel, Tetsuji Muto, David Mohrig, and François Métivier.
People will be able to participate in person on-site or virtually through webinars.
Breakout group discussions will contribute to a document of user needs for the U.S. NSF EarthCube effort.
