Sediment dispersal in river plumes

Triaxus deployment

River plumes are an important and dynamic component of the coastal landscape—delivering and distributing nutrients, contaminants, marine organisms, and sediments in shelf waters and shaping habitats that support diverse and productive ecosystems. As part of a large multidisciplinary study, we are investigating the mechanisms responsible for transport, resuspension and removal of sediment in the Columbia River plume.
