Suspended aggregate size and settling velocity at sediment concentrations <10 mg·dm-3 were determined in situ from aggregates sampled by a diver and from observations by a submersible video camera in September and November 1991. Aggregate size and settling velocity were up to 1500 µm and 1 cm·s-1, respectively. Aggregate size, settling velocity and density were highest during flood and high-water slack, which points to flocculation and settling during flood and high-water slack, and no resuspension by the ebb current. This agrees with the observed landward transport of fine-grained sediment inside the basin.
