INTRODUCTION In recent years there has been increased interest in the potential impact of hyperpycnal events (wherein high concentrations of suspended sediment, >~40 g/L, allow river water to sink beneath ambient ocean water into which it is discharged) on the coastal environment. Mulder and Syvitski (1995) identifi ed a number of global rivers that periodically reach hyper pycnal concentrations , but because such events may last only a few hours, often during severe storms, only a few have… CONTINUE READING
