The St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) is an interdisciplinary fluid mechanics research lab and educational facility under the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota.

We are engineers and scientists who collaborate across disciplines to solve fluids-related problems in the Earth-surface environment. Our vision encompasses both science and practice, beginning with basic research and moving through application, decision-making, and management.

Located on Hennepin Island in the Mississippi River in the heart of Minneapolis, SAFL serves as a resource for departments across the Twin Cities campus, the statewide University system, and the broader research community. We partner with local, state and federal agencies; private consulting firms; businesses of many kinds; technical associations; and other educational institutions to expand knowledge and solve problems. 

What is SAFL? Who works here? What do they do?
