The role of turbulence in transporting waterborne material within streambed sediments and across the sediment-water interface
Grant number: DP130103619 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016
The sediments of rivers, lakes and coastal ocean filter waterborne contaminants. This project uses novel experimental techniques to investigate the role of turbulence in transporting contaminants between water and boundary sediments. This project will inform better management of waterborne contaminants with benefits for human and ecosystem health.
