Abstract
    This paper describes the work done in the COSINUS project, carried out within the framework of the European MAST3 research programme, on the interaction between suspended (cohesive) sediment and turbulence, with particular emphasis on its modelling. Specific attention is given to the modelling of buoyancy damping effects and turbulence production due to internal waves. Finally, some experimental results are presented on the effect of advected turbulence to the entrainment of fluid mud.
