    425425Observations: The flow was much more established, when it reached the view of PCO1. Regular waves occurred along the slope until it reached the first corner. Almost the whole current turned south into the trough.
    426426
    427 Notes: The images for HS were accidently only taken for 7min, but restarted again for 7 min (EXP18_B).

    462 We increased the water level to 70 cm and kept the corner. The plan was to do one experiment with Q=110 l/min, but because that was so similar to 80 l/min before, we decided to increase it to 130 l/min (diaphragme 19.5mm). We kept the small dt = 50 ms and the E = 20 ms.

The plan was to do one experiment with Q=110 l/min, but because that was so similar to 80 l/min before, we decided to increase it to 150 l/min (diaphragme 19.5mm). Measurements of the flow rate gave a value of Q = 150 l/min. We kept the small dt = 50 ms and the E = 20 ms.

    464464Observations: The current entered the trough in a very large radius and builds an anti-cyclone on the shelf. Only a very small part of the current went straight, passing the trough.
     465
     466Note: '''During this and the following experiments with a water level of 70 cm, we didn't convert the flow rate relative to the source area below the water level! So, all these experiments give a smaller velocity compared to the same experiments with the lower water level.'''
     467
     468=== Experiment EXP25 ===
     469The desired flow rate was reduced to 80 l/min (diaphragme 16mm), which gave a flow rate of 94 l/min.   
     470
     471Observations: At the slope current towards the first corner, large vortices were created. The inflow into the trough was not very strong and more turbulent. Half of the flow passed the trough along the slope.
     472
     473=== Experiment EXP26 ===
     474The desired flow rate was reduced to 50 l/min (diaphrame 12.6mm), which gave a flow rate of 54 l/m. The images were started after the flow started, because it takes a long time for the flow to reach the view of the first camera.
     475
     476Note: The images for the first HS were taken for too short time (10 min), so that the flow was not established yet. We restarted and took more images for 5 min (saved in EXP26_B).
     477
     478Note: We added larger particles (60 micron) into the inflow water (instead of the 30 micron), because Joel suggested that it may be better for the PIV. The particles in the ambient water were still the same.
     479
     480Observations: The current enters the trough in a very large radius.
     481
     482=== Experiment EXP27 ===
     483This is a repetition of EXP26 without the corner. The measured flow rate was 53.2 l/min.
     484
     485Observations: Compared to EXP26 with the corner, the current enters the trough in a much smaller radius, following neatly the topography. After waiting, also a large part flow straight.
     486
     487Note: In the beginning of the experiment, there were still a lot of particles in the ambient water.
     488
     489=== Experiment EXP28 ===
     490The desired flow rate was increased to 80 l/min (16mm), which gave a measured flow rate of 92.4 l/min.
     491
     492We had to do this experiment twice (first one was overwritten), because the honeycomb in the source loosened in the beginning of the first time and released a lot of clustered particles/bubbles that spread over the whole flow area. The source had to be fixed and we didn't have the time to completely wait until all the clusters escaped the tank. During the second round of this experiment, there were therefore still some of the clusters moving into the sight of the cameras.
     493
     494Observations: The largest part of the current continued straight, but there was quite a strong return flow across the trough from the western corner of the trough to the southeastern corner of the trough.
