Abstract

Biological activity in shallow streams is dominated by biofilms which are attached to the surfaces of the streambed. Although biofilm kinetic models are well developed and are successfully applied to biological treatment process, they cannot be applied directly to predict water quality in shallow streams, because the area and mass-transport aspects of streambed biofilms are complicated and not defined. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to develop area and mass-transport functions for cobble- and gravel-lined streambeds.
