Stormwater particles and their sampling using passive devices

I. M. Brodie
Total Suspended Solids (TSS) is commonly used as a measure of particle concentration in stormwater. The breakdown of TSS into subgroups based on particle size is an important step in describing stormwater characteristics. A simple classification system is proposed that divides solids into four size ranges; Very Fine (VFPs, <8μm), Fine (FPs, 8-63μm), Medium (MPs, 63-500μm) and Coarse Particles (CPs, >500μm). The use of passive samplers to obtain unbiased, flow-weighted samples of non-Coarse particles was...
