Low Density Turbidity Current
(Relatively) Low Density Turbidity Current Movie from Gary Parker, St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory, University of Minnesota.

Slow moving, relatively low density turbidity current. Note the relatively minor turbulence seen in the flow head. Scale is marked off in centimeters. Close up of head from 1:12 to 1:23 shows nearly laminar movement of the turbid cloud through water. The turbidity flow lifts up at the end of the ramp it is moving along due to recirculation of water at the end of the tank.
