Coagulation in Natural Watersby Charles R. O'Melia, Johns Hopkins Univ, Dep of Geography, & Environmental Engineering, Baltimore, MD, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulics and Hydrology in the Small Computer Age
Abstract: The hydrodynamics and chemistry of particle-particle interactions can control the transport of particles and of particle-reactive pollutants. In lakes, particle deposition is accomplished by sedimentation that is often complemented by coagulation. Trace metals are usually particle-reactive and accompany particles to the sediments. Hydrophobic organic pollutants can volatilize at the air-water interface and the atmosphere can be the principal sink for many such compounds.
