Model Results

Model results from steady, uniform flow with floc dynamics.

Model results from steady, uniform flow with floc dynamics. Left panels: time series of vertical profiles of
  (a) total suspended-sediment mass concentration,
  (b) mass-concentration-weighted average particle diameter, and
  (c) mass-concentration-weighted average settling velocity.

Middle panels: Final profiles of
  (d) total concentration,
  (e) average diameter, and
  (f) average settling velocity.

Right panel:
  (g) final vertical concentration profiles of each floc class (colors) and total concentration (black).

Concentrations for the 20- and 27-µm diameter classes less than 10-6 and do not appear on the plot.
