Summary

The files consist of two types: tabulated data files and graphical map files. Data files consist of six .csv files, representing six experiment dates (2016_06_14, 2016_16_15, 2016_18_15, 2016_16_21, 2016_16_22, 2016_16_23). Each of these files contains multiple columns of data, with each column representing either a time measurement or the value of a physical quantity measured at that time (e.g., flow depth, pore pressure, normal stress, etc.). Map files consist of six .pdf files, each representing an experiment date listed above. The maps show the thickness of the sediment deposited onto the runout pad after each experiment. Sediment thickness was determined using photogrammetery software from Adam Technology.

Purpose

These data were collected as part of a long-term program of large-scale experimentation at the USGS debris-flow flume. The chief focus of the six experiments performed in 2016 and represented in this data set was twofold: (1) measurement of evolving basal stresses as the flume headgate opened, and (2) measurement of broadband seismic energy radiated by the moving debris flows. Seismological data are archived at: http://www.fdsn.org/networks/detail/ZK_2016/ and http://ds.iris.edu/mda/ZK?timewindow=2016-2016
