Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The Wax Lake Outlet and Atchafalaya River deltas in Louisiana have grown dramatically, and concern for their impacts has led the US Army Corps of Engineers to conduct an investigation to predict how the deltas will evolve over the next 50 years. The overall study task was to determine the impacts of that growth on navigation, flood control, salinity, and sedimentation. Within this series of reports, this report documents field, laboratory, and theoretical studies on the settling characteristics of bay sediments. Tests were performed using resuspended bed samples and samples of suspended material, and covered a wide concentration range. The effects of settling height, salinity, suspension concentration, and turbulence were tested.
