Today was the first day of testing - nicely on target. There were some teething problems in the morning with pumps and various other issues, but by 11:30 the first proper waves were being recorded. On the whole all went well, but there are a number of issues that need addressing over the few days, ranging from cross-talk between instruments, potential strumming issues (vibration of instrument poles), three-dimensionality in the flume, challenges of keeping hydraulic gradient across the bed, and the minor detail of a bar forming rather than a berm. So all well in the goot!
