Abstract:The suspended solids concentrations in the Thames Estuary have been monitored extensively in the past by a number of researchers. In the work by Thorn and Burt, the results of the analysis of long term monitoring of suspended solids concentrations were combined with the tidal excursion derived from comprehensive field measurements to deduce the probable locations of silt sources and sinks. However, it was considered appropriate to ascertain whether within a reasonable short stretch of the estuary, it is possible to identify and quantify the processes of cohesive sediment transport by detailed field measurement of the suspended solids concentrations and tidal velocities.
