Modeling Rivers with Alfalfa Sprouts

Through the combination of a sand and plastic substrate (to simulate gravel and sand respectively) and alfalfa sprouts (to simulate deep rooted vegetation) a group of Berkeley researchers have successfully recreated a performative model of a meandering stream. Science Daily. Oct 2009

The ability to simulate natural processes through scaled models ties back into the Mississippi Basin Model. In this sense the abstraction occurs because the media (alfalfa sprouts, sand, plastic) perform as scaled counterparts to the real world.
