|dc.description.abstract||Transparency tubes have been shown to be useful tools for suspended solids estimation in flowing waters. Suspended solids and turbidity can impact streams in a number of ways from habitat smothering to visual impairments. Comparison of transparency tube data to the Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) as measured by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency shows a strong correlation. Additional data must be gathered to determine whether this is a true relationship.||en_US|
