Effects of water turbulence on plant, sediment and water quality in reed (Phragmites australis) community
Abstract Even though the interaction between water movements and aquatic plant is crucial for the aquatic ecosystem management, the importance of water turbulence in this regard is not well
The Influence of Macrophytes on Sediment Resuspension and the Effect of Associated Nutrients in a Shallow and Large Lake (Lake Taihu, China)
Sediment resuspension may be one of the most important factors delaying the recovery of eutrophic Lake Taihu, and the influence of sediment res Suspension on water quality must also be taken into account by the lake managers when they determine the restoration target.
Consolidated sediment resuspension in model vegetated canopies
Aquatic plants, turbulence and sediment fluxes interact with each other in a complex, non-linear fashion. While most studies have considered turbulence as being generated primarily by mean flow, it

Dynamic monitoring of resuspension in the multiple eco-types of the littoral zone of a shallow wind-disturbed lake
Sedimentation and resuspension processes, are known to govern nutrient cycling and lake metabolic processes, but have not been well studied in littoral zones with multi-ecotypes of shallow
Characterization of total suspended solid dynamics in a large shallow lake using long‐term daily satellite images
Large, shallow‐water lakes located on floodplains play an important role in creating highly productive ecosystems and are prone to high concentrations of suspended solids due to sediment


The effect of an emergent macrophyte (Typha angustifolia) on sediment resuspension in a shallow north temperate lake
1. The effects of emergent macrophytes on water turbidity and sediment resuspension in the shallow Kirkkojarvi basin of Lake Hiidenvesi were studied with sediment traps, and concomitant sediment and
Shear stress and sediment resuspension in relation to submersed macrophyte biomass
We examined the impacts of macrophyte beds dominated by a canopy-forming (Myriophyllum sibiricum) and a meadow-forming (Chara canescens) species on bottom shear stress (τ) and resuspension in shallow
Water flow across and sediment trapping in submerged macrophyte beds of contrasting growth form.
Patterns of wave amplitudes, linear flow velocity, turbidity, sedimentation and periphyton accumulation were quantified across two macrophyte beds of contrasting architecture and adjacent unvegetated
Effects of aquatic macrophytes on organic matter deposition, resuspension and phosphorus entrainment in a lowland river.
Summary 1. Although macrophytes play a key role in the structure and functioning of lowland rivers, most of the basic plant, hydrodynamic and sediment-water interactions have only been described
Effects of different macrophyte growth forms on sediment and P resuspension in a shallow lake
The effects of floating-leaved, submerged and emergent macrophytes on sediment resuspension and internal phosphorus loading were studied in the shallow Kirkkojärvi basin by placing sedimentation
The interaction between water movement, sediment dynamics and submersed macrophytes
Water movement in freshwater and marine environments affects submersed macrophytes, which also mediate water movement. The result of this complex interaction also affects sediment dynamics in and
Flow structure in depth-limited, vegetated flow
Aquatic vegetation controls the mean and turbulent flow structure in channels and coastal regions and thus impacts the fate and transport of sediment and contaminants. Experiments in an open-channel
Zooplankton community response to enhanced turbulence generated by water‐level decrease in Lake Balaton, the largest shallow lake in Central Europe
During the unusually long European drought between 2000 and 2003, the water level of the large and shallow Lake Balaton, Hungary (area = 596 km2, mean depth = 3.25 m), decreased by 28%. Although food
