This year Chi-Yao and I participate the Summer Institute on Earth Surface Dynamics (SIESD) hold by National Center for Earth Surface Dynamics (NCED) in the University of Minnesota. This is a wonderful workshop, there are great lecturers and great participants. As a big melting pot, we met students with different backgrounds.
We are flow and sediment experimentalists in Taiwan. We use physical experiments, simplified mathematics and field data to explore morphodynamic problems. We believe scale independent and devote ourselves to find natural rules that show multiscale similarities.
