suspended sediment measurement Applications
Turbidity is a measure of the loss of light transmittance through a liquid due to suspended particles. The more particles in the water, the murkier it looks or the higher the turbidity. This is a measure of the quality of the water. It is measured in units called Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU). Turbidity can be caused by run off after a heavy rain as erosion washes soil into a river or lake. It is often increased in the spring and fall when the water temperature at different levels in a lake change causing a turnover of those levels, bringing sediment, plants, and algae to the top.
