The transport, transformation and dispersal of sediment by buoyant coastal flows
Geyer, W.R., P.S. Hill, and G.C. Kineke

Rivers are a dominant source of sediment entering the ocean. The sediment can be trapped in frontal zones and other oceanographic features, leading to high concentrations. Because of this and other processes, the transport of sediment in river-influenced environments often occurs near the seafloor, rather than the surface.
