Follow the model of work we have established at the Duwamish River to train PSP LIOs. Specifically, how to collect width- and depth-integrated water samples to determine suspended sediment concentrations, alongside continuous monitoring of river turbidity to create an estimate for continuous suspended sediment concentrations. How to collect width- and depth-integrated water samples and analyze them for contaminants. How to collect pumped water samples and use portable centrifuges to compile suspended sediment that can be analyzed for particle size and contaminants sorbed to the sediment. Demonstrate the use of continuous river disc...
