New EPA Research Report: SILTFLUX Literature Review has been released as part of the EPA Research Programme 2014–2020. The programme was financed by the Irish Government and administered by the Environmental Protection Agency, which has the statutory function of co-ordinating and promoting environmental research. This report focuses on the key issues that affect the role of fine sediment in bodies of water in areas of Northern Europe, the UK and Ireland. It provides a comprehensive explanation of fine sediment morphology, routes of entry, and potential environmental impacts.
