In hydrology, geomorphology and geology, small-scale modeling
methods have an increasing importance. The sandtable at the
University of Pécs has been built for this purpose in 2013.
This modeling system is used for the monitoring of various
morphological processes, including the formation of
fanglomerates, tectonical phenomena or river channel
development. To quantify fanglomerate development, we have
carried out a sandtable experiment under laboratory
conditions. By employing the geomodel and simulating the
real-world processes, we have developed a novel method that,
with the support of photogrammetric images, is capable of
calculating the perimeter, slope, volume and rate of volume
changes of the fanglomerates.
