Abstract

An inexpensive and convenient method for marine biological investigation of the sedimentation in the immediate proximity of biological objects on the seabed is considered. The method is a modification of the widespread method of cylindrical sediment traps [1,6]. It makes it possible to analyze the amount of suspended particulate matter passing within the near-bottom boundary layer and the processes of sedimentation and resuspension. Its application is illustrated by the results of investigation of the influence of some processes taking place in the near-bottom layer on the distribution of scleractinian corals in a reef off Dao-Chao Island (Baitylong Archipelago, the Gulf of Tonkin).
