Abstract

The suspended sediment discharge during this event was identified using NOAA-9 and NOAA-10 Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data from March 29 to April 14. The sediment plumes showed a westward movement upon reaching the Gulf of Maine. 105 metric tons of fine-grained sediments were carried onto the continental shelf in the largest plume, that from the Kennebec-Androscoggin river system. -from Authors
