    Abstract

    The cohesive nature of sediments coating the floors of Scottish freshwater lochs and reservoirs is illustrated through microscopic observations, settling velocity experiments, geophysical remote sensing, and rheology. Preliminary results confirm 1) the occurrence of natural sedimentary aggregates, 2) the importance of organic matter in aggregate formation and rheological behavior, and 3) the shear thinning, thixotropic character of the deposits.
