This research was undertaken to explore the distribution of small anthropogenic particulates (SAP) in the Santa Ana River (SAR), and to determine the contribution of SAP to the sediment load of the SAR. SAP have never been documented before in the fluvial systems, especially in Southern California. This project will effectively establish a baseline for future changes in SAP for environmental monitoring and regulations.
