Oxidation of surface sediment: effects of disturbance depth and seawater flow speed

Vopel, Kay; Pilditch, C; Wilson, Peter; Ellwood, Michael

Description

Periodic disturbance of surface sediment is a natural feature of marine environments. Following exposure to oxygenated seawater, the disturbed sediment oxidises leading to the recovery of its surface chemistry. Despite its importance for the ecology of the sediment-water interface, the dynamics of this recovery is not well known. We studied the effects of disturbance depth and sea- water flow speed on the oxidation of estuarine cohesive sediment in a laboratory flume with micro- electrodes. We...[Show more]
