Validation of Model-Based Techniques for Characterization of Surface Sediment at Khadakwasala Lake with Field Data
Siltation is the major concern in the freshwater systems residing in the tropical region. The precise characterization of the sediment type is critical for initiating any de-siltation effort or even to ascertain the siltation process for introducing any preventive measures. In this work, we carried out surface sediment characterization at Khadakwasala Lake using the analytical data acquired by using Edgetech SB216S sub-bottom profiler. This paper presents validation of two model-based techniques viz. energy model and central frequency shift model to characterize the surface sediment at Khadakwasala Lake.
