Abstract
    Essential characteristics of a turbulent boundary layer, bearing silt flocks in suspension, are described and interpreted with the help of a simple steady state model calibrated for the test region of the Math. Modelsea project off the Northern Belgian Coast in near critical conditions : no net flux of particles through the bottom boundary.The model emphasizes the existence between the viscous sublayer and the classical Prandt1–Karman logarithmic layer, of an “elastic sub–layer” where gravity acting on the suspended load provides the necessary restoring force.
