In oceanography and limnology, the sediment–water interface is the boundary between bed sediment and the overlying water column. The topography of this interface is often dynamic, as it is affected by physical processes (e.g. currents causing rippling or resuspension) and biological processes (e.g. bioturbation generating mounds or trenches).
