For instance, main dominant diatom taxa in surface sediments have not changed during more than 25 years (between the 1970s and 2006), indicating continuous eutrophic conditions (Puusepp & Punning 2011).
The main characteristic of submerged vanes, as a method for controlling the sediments entering the intake, is that due to the pressure difference between both sides of the vane, secondary flows are created behind the vanes which cause that the direction of approaching bed sediments are changed towards the middle of river.
Three sampling locations were selected so that the study would include sediments from drainage areas that ranged from 768 acres to 10,625 acres.
By measuring the radioactivity of suspended material moving down the river and comparing this with the radioactivity of sediments, the scientists can work out the relative contributions of each erosion process.
Practices used successfully to retain soil on croplands and mitigate the transport of sediments to surface waters include the use of polyacrylamide (PAM, a liquid or solid material synthesized from propylene) added to water to stabilize the soil (Sojka et al.
