Figure 1(c) illustrates a typical laboratory test result demonstrating application of a swirl flow design by removing baffles; it shows that a reduced sedimentation depth ([H.
Results of Scenario-1 indicates that power units can safely operate for 21 days without any stoppage to flush sedimentation in the sand trap when the diversion flow carries sediment concentration of 0.

Nutrient enrichment has been shown to affect fecundity, oocyte sizes, fertilization rates, and embryo development in acroporids (Ward and Harrison, 2000; Harrison and Ward, 2001; Cox and Ward, 2002), and sedimentation has been shown to affect processes such as larval settlement, recruit survival, and juvenile growth (Rogers, 1990; Te, 1992; Gilmour, 1999; Fabricius, 2005).
