Experiments were carried out to account for the self-organization in three systems: dry, where the fluid is air, and two wet systems, with the fluids being water and a 67% by weight solution of sodium iodine (NaI) dissolved in water to match the refractive index of the transparent glass beads. Results reveal the robustness of axial segregation particularly in dry systems.
