A series of entrainment and deposition experiments was performed with the general purpose of increasing our understanding of the parameters on which entrainment and deposition depend and the specific purpose of obtaining entrainment rates for a variety of sediments from the western basin of Lake Erie. The experiments were performed in an annular flume. A rotating top produced a turbulent flow which in turn exerted a turbulent shear stress on the sediments deposited on the bottom of the flume. Four different sediments from the western basin of Lake Erie were analyzed. Large variations in entrainment and deposition rates occurred and are shown to be dependent on the shear stress water content (time after deposition), the type of sediment (grain size and mineralogy), and the manner of deposition.
