Effect of temperature on settling of fire sediments / by Y.L. Lau.: En13-5/90-64E-PDF
"The process of settling of fine sediments is very important to the understanding of the fate and pathways of contaminants because these sediments often carry a significant portion of the contaminants entering our aquatic environment. Previous studies of the settling process have not dealt with the effects of temperature on the flocculation and settling. In this report, results of an experimental investigation are presented which show that more settling can take place at the lower temperatures which prevail for lengthy periods of time in Canadian waters. This information is useful for the modelling of sediment and contaminant transport"--Management perspective.
