The Delta Basin is a square flume measuring approximately 5 meters by 5 meters, and is 0.61 meters deep. The exact experimental configuration may vary depending on the scientific objectives - the specific scheme at right represents that for the DB03-1 and DB03-2 experiments.
A mix of sediment and water are introduced at a single infeed point in one corner of the basin. This produces a radially symetrical delta-like deposit. A syphon-based ocean controller at the opposite corner allows for precise base-level manipulation, and specifically for the creation of accomodation space via a slow base-level rise.
