An article by ET-AL members Joe Wheaton and Alan Kasprak and colleagues in the UK and Spain was just published online in the Journal of Geophyscial Research - Earth Surface. The article provides some of the first empirical field tests of classic braiding mechanisms. The article has been highlighted by AGU in their Journal Highlights and appeared in a 'Resesarch Spotlight' in EOS by Balcerak (2013) in June. See here for a press release from USU or here for a press release from coauthors at the University of Southampton.
