"Silt" in context

Silt is formed when small deposits, such as silica and clay, are transported by a river or other body of water and deposited on the bed of the water. The particles can range from 0.004 to 0.06 millimeters in size, making the deposit highly porous. When silt accumulates on the bed and along the shore of a river or lake, it is known as siltation. This process can be extremely damaging to aquatic life, as it can affect their habitat and reduce the amount of oxygen in the water.
