     154The cameras still have to be adjusted. After that is done, we take photos with the calibration grid in the horizontal and in 3D with both cameras that are fixed on the roof. With PIV, we conduct the calibration of both cameras as described in 4.1.
     156'''Friday 08 September'''
     158To verify the calibration, we took photos with both cameras with one ruler to see if the calibrations of the cameras agree (which it does!). Then, we added a wall into the tank to prevent the water of the freshwater experiments to return to the source. The laser height was adjusted.

     162The table starts rotating for the first time with a velocity of 50 rounds/ sec. It gets slowly filled with water to a level of 60 cm. This takes about 3h. Before we can start the experiments, the lasers first have to be adjusted. To check how long the water stays in the water, we conduct a little experiments with water (from the tank) that is enriched with particles. After about 2 hours a 4 mm thick clear surface layer develops.
    154164''First day of experiment ! We have many difficulties to get an homogeneous distribution of particles at the level of the laser sheet (located in the dense lower layer). We first spray at the surface the particles (30 microns, 1013 g/l) diluted with quite dense salty water. But after waiting one hour the particles never reach the level of the laser sheet... Hence, in order to be able to visualize something we started to inject directly inside the lower layer with the sprayer. We then succeed to disperse high concentration of particles at the level of the laser sheet.''
