Using clay to control harmful algal blooms: deposition and resuspension of clay/algal flocs



Using clay to control harmful algal blooms: deposition and resuspension of clay/algal flocs



Harmful Algae 4(1): 123-138



Harmful algal blooms (HABs) may be legitimate targets for direct control or mitigation, due to their impacts on commercial fisheries and public health. One promising control strategy is the rapid sedimentation of HABs through flocculation with clay. The objective of this study was to evaluate flow environments in which such a control strategy might be effective in removing harmful algae from the water column and depositing a layer of clay/algal flocs on the sea floor.
