In both cases, it is the fines (<63 [micro]m) that are the most relevant to transportation by water current and redeposition away from the source substrate, as they settle much more slowly and remain in the water column for longer periods than larger particles (Short & Walton 1992, Palazzi et al.
The redeposition or fouling often occurs on a heat-transfer surface.
They found that these phosphorite deposits occurred as a result of the following steps; erosion of calcitized deposits, redeposition in a phosphatizing environment, phosphatization of this detritus material and weathering causing an enrichment of the ores [2].
2008) showed that surface stratification of Zn in no-tilled soils, as opposed to cultivated soils, is probably the result of redeposition of this nutrient from the deeper soil horizons during plant fall, surface placement of inorganic fertilisers containing this cation as an impurity, as well as less soil disturbance, de Santiago et al.
Prior to the use of synthetics, laundry detergents were successful at removing soil from cotton fabrics without redeposition issues.
Since all the loose soil, rubble and rock which were scraped off under the ice, was carried just a little way before redeposition, we can make a direct calculation.

In addition to this, samples irradiated with more than 5 pulses presented a yellowish and slightly hazy appearance, which results from marked redeposition of molten material and polymer degradation during the multipulse ablation process.
This corresponds to the phase of strong sedimentation, with the transportation of materials from various parts of the site, situated on higher levels, preceding their redeposition, with the consequent mixing of materials from various periods, both the early and Full Chalcolithic.
During pipeline cleaning it is necessary to emulsify hydrocarbon and solid particles removed in order to prevent redeposition downstream.
This view is consistent with observations of lungfish dental anatomy, including Tomes (1882), Peyer (1925), Bemis (1984), and Smith & Krupina (2001), all of whom noted the sustained growth and redeposition of dental plates in Dipnoi.
