Stream Tables for Earth Science


Plas-Labs' Stream Tables and Land Form Systems were designed and created to facilitate the simulations and study of many basic land forms for Earth Science.

Students at universities, colleges, and high schools are also using the Plas-Labs' Stream Tables to help increase their knowledge about the world's significant land formations developed by streams and rivers.

The Wave Maker comes complete with all Steam Table packages. The Wave Maker allows formation of sand bars along the lake edge, with adequate water level and sediment size. "Up-Lifted" beach terraces can be formed or eroded, in succession with the lake level. The Wave Maker allows the study of beach erosion, bays, sand bars and simulating waves approaching jetties or other shoreline formations.

Crustal Stress Simulator

The Crustal Stress Simulator allows the study of changes in the earth's crust. The flowing stream may develop a fold in the earth's crust, forming water gaps, ponds, and trellis drainage patterns.

Rainfall Simulator

The Rainfall Simulator allows the user to obtain a more advanced climate in the study. The two-tiered simulator permits the user to produce a "heavy downpour" or a "gentle rain". The amount of water placed in the simulator can be maintained by the Power Pack.

Contour Grid

The Contour Grid contains etched 5 cm squares for plotting changes and sediment deposits. You may outline the stream course on the grid. As water flows through the stream, altering its course, you may then compare the bank changes, sediment deposits, stream accuracy and interpretation.

Terrain Feature Model

With the Terrain Feature Model placed in the lake area of the stream table, the Contour Grid System permits tracing of waterline contours of successive depths. The result is a topographic map whose detail is dependent up the contour interval. Terrain Feature Model includes replicas of a young river, volcano, mountain peak, meandering river, an "Oxbow" lake, and a receding shoreline.
