A storm of moderate intensity and lasting for 14 hours was simulated in three of the Marine Ecosystems Research Laboratory (MERL) microcosms by increasing the intensity of microcosm mixing. The simulation resuspended ~0.3 cm of sediment and increased suspended particulate loads by 2 orders of magnitude. Concurrently, the concentrations of metals and nutrients increased in the water column....
