From: Effect of organic matter on estuarine flocculation: a laboratory study using montmorillonite, humic acid, xanthan gum, guar gum and natural estuarine flocs

Figure 3

The steady-state median floc size ( d 50 μm) for the systems containing 250 mg L-1montmorillonite and varying quantities (0 – 20 mg L-1in terms of total organic carbon (TOC)) of organic matter (either xanthan gum (XG) or humic acid (HA)) was determined at four discrete salinity values (i.e., S = 0, 3.5, 7 and 17.5 psu). This figure shows the same xanthan gum and humic acid data presented in Figure 2, but on a different y axis scale.
