Abstract:

This technical note examines changes in sediment physical and chemical characteristics due to desiccation and rewetting in laboratory systems. Results from this study may be used to better understand how sediment changes as a result of a lake drawdown and has implications for macrophyte growth potential in shallow lake rehabilitation programs.
