This video showcases the research of Dr. Elizabeth Davis-Berg, Professor of Biology at Columbia College of Chicago. Here, ProAnalyst's Particle Tracking toolkit counts and categorizes food particles in the water flowing around some barnacles. This toolkit, designed for statistical analysis of particle flows, allows classification of particles by size, shape, eccentricity, or axial orientation. It is also useful for sprays, injectors, plumes, and impact studies.
The Particle Tracking toolkit estimates the path or velocity of particles by establishing correspondences for all particles from frame to frame of the video. Particle trails can also be configured to show the entire estimated trail for each visible particle.
