Locally, they substantially contribute to the mixing of water masses and resuspension and transport of bottom sediment (Stastna & Lamb 2008; Reeder et al.
The high metal content of subway [particulate matter] has been attributed to the wear of railway components, including steel cables, wheels, and rails, as well as braking systems, and higher PM concentrations at subway platforms result from the resuspension of 'steel dust' and other PM by passing trains," the study says.
Surface adhesion with subsequent resuspension to the bowl water after the flush seems the most plausible explanation for persistent bowl water contamination, and the similar behavior of inert polymer microspheres and bacteria suggests a physical rather than biological attachment mechanism.
5-mL microtube centrifuged at 4[degrees]C, 20,000 x g for 30 min, after which 285 [micro]L of supernatant was discarded; the remainder was transferred into a thin-wall 200-[micro]L PCR tube after resuspension with 85 [micro]L lysis buffer by gentle pipetting.
Ultraviolet germicidal coil cleaning: Decreased surface microbial loading and resuspension of cell clusters.
The DVS contains an internal high-flow bypass weir system which diverts excess flows around the settling chamber, minimizing the risk of resuspension of pollutants and allowing for either online or offline configurations.
The particulate emissions factor from resuspension on a paved road surface was estimated using (USEPA method):
Repairs included anterior leaflet repair with cusp shortening and resuspension (n=17), posterior leaflet repair with quardranguloplasty and transpositioning (n=6), commissuroplasty (n=2) and mixed anterior posterior leaflet repair (n=3).
Excavation will result in resuspension of the material, worsening the river and putting nearby communities at risk for years to come.
On the other hand, the sediment resuspension near the shoreline produces an input of nutrients to the water column, resulting in more food for planktic primary producers, but more turbidity for benthic primary producers.
The current excavation at the site is part of a pilot project, designed to show that wet dredging can be done without causing more environmental damage through resuspension of contaminated material in the water column.
