Benthic Bulldozers and Pumps: Laboratory and Modelling Studies of Bioturbation and Bioirrigation

Grigg, Nicola Jane


Aquatic sediments are the recipients of a continual rain of organic debris from the water column. The decomposition reactions within the sediment and the rates of material exchange between the sediment and water column are critically moderated by the transport processes within the sediment. The sediment and solute movement induced by burrowing animals – bioturbation and bioirrigation – far exceed abiotic transport processes such as sedimentation burial and molecular diffusion. Thalassinidean...[Show more]
