Artificial Jellyfish Flume Experiments

The effect of jellyfish carcasses on fluid dynamics at the seafloor has not been investigated.  Therefore, in April Kathy Dunlop is conducting experiments in flume at the Royal Netherlands Institute of Sea Research (NIOZ).  

First the board on which to place the artificial jellyfish (made of moulded agar) was made and an artificial jellyfish tested in the flume to ensure that it didn't float.

Creating the experimental board to insert into the flume.
