Excerpt from Ocean Margins Program: Phase 1 Projects; Research Summaries

To the extent that organics are sequestered or derived from bottom sediments, it is important to determine this ?ux. Our interest is in the estimation of sediment related input/output at the sea?oor. The sediments, stirred by the wave-induced near-bed oscillatory motion, produce a strong nepheloid layer of the order of 5-10 cm thick in a region termed the 'wave boundary layer'. This layer contains all that material which is either of high density, large, or both so that the net result is that it has a high settling rate. Significant mass transport of such large material can occur in the wave boundary layer. To date, no precise measurements of the sediment have been made; single parameter data such as optical backscatter are subject to enormous errors due to a spatially and temporally varying size distribution to which these sensors are highly sensitive. Our approach employs a new sensor system, developed as a follow up of one used on the California shelf in the experiment stress. The instrument is based on laser diffraction by a particle ensemble. The angular scattering pattern is recorded and subsequently mathematically inverted to obtain size spectra and concentration.
