Flocculation of fine-grained suspended solids in Southern Ontario rivers / by I.G. Droppo.: En13-5/90-66E-PDF

"The phenomenon of fine-grained sediment flocculation is well recognized in the marine and estuarine environments, however, flocculation in the freshwater fluvial system requires further examination. Because flocculation is known to affect sediment settling velocities, this phenomenon has important environmental implications from a sediment and contaminant transport perspective. The suspended sediment characteristics of Oakville Sixteen-Mile Creek in Southern Ontario were examined using a new digitizing method developed for this study. The study indicates that flocculation is occurring in the fluvial system and that flocs represent a significant proportion of the total suspended sediment volume"--Management perspective.
