Siltation measured with a SediMeter™

In this a lab demonstration with computer screen and sedimentation tank side by side, you can see how two different sedimentation events are reflected in the SediMeter™ data. The first consists of soil, so it has a lot of dark and fine matter (humus). The second is washed white sand. Pay attention to how the turbidity (blue line) varies, and how the bottom changes (red line) when sediment is added to the tank and settles out of suspension.
