Cloud physics group that works on fine scale turbulence

Cloud Physics Laboratory from MichiganTech has the following facility:

Our group is developing a “turbulent cloud in a box” to study the interactions between particles and turbulent flows.  The chamber is a cube with “woofers” on each corner, and with this setup we can control the rate at which kinetic energy is dissipated by turbulence. We also simultaneously control the particle size distribution. Particle spatial distributions are measured via digital in-line holography (see more below about the HOLODEC instrument based on the same principle).MTU Turbulence Chamber

It seems to be kind of similar to our small-scale research. I guess there is a way to use 3D-PTV there.
