Sequoia teaching course on Suspended Sediment Concentration and Sizing methods at Battelle conference

November 17, 2014

Seeking Clarity in Sediment Concentration and Sizing Methods?

Join Sequoia Scientific for a short course in sediment concentration and sizing methods and technologies.

Dr. Wayne Slade and Chuck Pottsmith will conduct this short course on sediment concentration and sizing methods and technologies at the Battelle Contaminated Sediments Conference on 12 January 2015. The objective of the course is provide a survey of suspended particle (sediment) concentration, size distribution, and dynamics, describe and compare particle sizing technologies and methods, and examine case studies in sedimentology and environmental monitoring. A variety of methods such as gravimetric analysis, sieving, settling column, optical and acoustic backscattering, and laser diffraction will be presented, as well as some biases, strengths and weaknesses, and inter-comparability of each. We finish the short course with a presentation of case studies using SSC and PSD measurements in sediment research, monitoring, and management

Time is running short. Registration Deadline Extended to 21 November:   More info and links to registration at
