Water, bottom sediment, and biota were sampled during and in the Salton Sea area to determine concentrations of trace elements and pesticides as part of the Department of Interior Irrigation Drainage Program. The sampling sites (12 water, 15 bottom sediment, and 5 biota) were located in the Coachella and Imperial Valleys. The focus of sampling was to determine the current or. Environmental surveillance at the Hanford Site collects data that provides a historical record of radionuclide and radiation levels attributable to natural causes, worldwide fallout, and Hanford operations. Data are also collected to monitor several chemicals and metals in Columbia River Water and Sediment.   Shoreline changes were analyzed using two metrics: (1) shoreline mobility and induced coastal area change over time, and (2) conversion of coastal land into water, or conversion of adjacent coastal water into land. Data on shoreline mobility and area change were obtained from 47 digitized LANDSAT satellite images (60–30 m pixel size) from Cited by: 2. water, bottom sediment, and biota were moderately to considerably larger than established criteria and standards. The largest selenium concentra­ tions in water and bottom sediment were from seeps that surround Benton Lake, with maximum concentrations of micrograms per liter in water and micrograms per gram in bottom sediment.

Belmont Patrick Parker Gary " A numerical model to develop long-term.   As river water passes along the northern and eastern boundary of Hanford, groundwater from beneath the site enters through shoreline springs and direct discharge. Downstream of Hanford, an average of 11 curies of natural and human-made radioactivity flow in the river each day. Manual measurements of water levels and temperatures provided calibration and quality control. Synoptic manual shoreline sediment temperatures also were logged periodically 10 cm offshore at depths of 1 and 15 cm into the lake sediments. Streamflow Measurements. Water & Shorelines. We improve and protect water quality, manage and conserve water resources, and effectively manage coastal and inland shorelines to assure our state has sufficient supplies of clean water for communities and the natural environment.

  Deep-water sediment waves can be classified using a combination of grain size and wave-forming process, although in some cases one or other of these criteria may be indeterminable. Sediment waves are generated beneath currents flowing across the seabed, in the form of either downslope-flowing turbidity currents or alongslope-flowing bottom. @article{osti_, title = {Study of the relationship between water quality and sediment transport: A guide for the collection and interpretation of sediment quality data}, author = {Golterman, H.L. and Sly, P.G. and Thomas, R.L.}, abstractNote = {This guidebook takes the reader from a description of the nature and properties of sediments, to an explanation of how to plan a sediment. @article{osti_, title = { Area Columbia River sediment sampling}, author = {Weiss, S G}, abstractNote = {Forty-four sediment samples were collected from 28 locations in the Hanford Reach of the Columbia River to assess the presence of metals and man-made radionuclides in the near shore and shoreline settings of the Hanford Site. @article{osti_, title = { Hanford riverbank springs characterization report}, author = {Dirkes, R L}, abstractNote = {This reports presents the results of a special study undertaken to characterize the riverbank springs (i.e., ground-water seepage) entering the Columbia River along the Hanford Site.
