FIGURE 4.2 Size-density relationship for visually identified floc, compact and compact-organic particles from both ambient and resuspended sediment in mid- and post-spawn of 2000. Note the separation of flocs and compact particles into the arms of the distribution.

when the particle subpopulations were differentiated the proportion of flocs never comprise as much as half of the population, although the maximum value occurs in the die-off period of 1996 when 35% were identified as flocs. Of note in Table 4.2 is the proportion of compact particles observed in the resuspended sediment in the
