Annular flume experiments and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) were used to quantitatively and qualitatively measure benthic-pelagic exchange of microphytobenthos from natural sediments. Clear spatial and temporal differences in. microphytobenthos resuspension in response to stepwise increases in current velocity were observed. Resuspension of chlorophyll a (chl a) from sandy sediments containing low levels of microphytobenthos biomass (56 mg chl a m(- 2)) displayed strong resistance to erosion at currents
