  • Particulate matter suspended in the River Severn (Shropshire, UK) consists chiefly of clay-sized mineral particles, together with living and dead micro-organisms (algae and bacteria). Its concentration depends strongly on discharge, but the particle size distribution shows no systematic variability. For most samples, the particle volume is log-normally distributed with respect to diameter, the mean diameter being ca. 9 μm. The particles are mainly aggregates, including some with linear… CONTINUE READING
