Short summary
In this paper we investigate the origin of the variability in near-bottom turbidity observations in Alfacs Bay (in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea). The observations of turbidity peaks are consistent with the seiche phenomenon. We suggest that the sequence of resuspension events plays an important role in the suspended sediment concentration, meaning that previous sediment resuspension events may influence the increase in suspended sediment in subsequent events.
In this paper we investigate the origin of the variability in near-bottom turbidity...
