silts, plural;
  1. Become filled or blocked with silt
    • - the river's mouth had silted up
    • - the silting of the river estuary
  2. Fill or block with silt

  1. Fine sand, clay, or other material carried by running water and deposited as a sediment, esp. in a channel or harbor

  2. A bed or layer of such material

  3. Sediment whose particles are between clay and sand in size (typically 0.002–0.06 mm)

  1. mud or clay or small rocks deposited by a river or lake
  2. silt up: become chocked with silt; "The river silted up"
  3. Silt is granular material of a grain size between sand and clay derived from soil or rock. Silt may occur as a soil or as suspended sediment (also known as suspended load) in a surface water body. It may also exist as soil deposited at the bottom of a water body.
  4. Silt is the debut album by Mistle Thrush, a Boston, Massachusetts-based band. It was released in 1995 on CD by Bedazzled (catalog #BDZ26). The previous year, the band released a five-song EP titled Agus Amàrach. The band didn't release another full-length album until 1997's Super Refraction. ...
  5. Mud or fine earth deposited from running or standing water; Material with similar physical characteristics, whatever its origins or transport; To clog or fill with silt; To become clogged with silt
  6. (Silts) Muddy material that can be organic or non-organic in composition
  7. Soil particles having diameters between 0.004 and 0.062 mm (millimeters). Sometimes they may be too small to be trapped by the circulation system. In those cases, a clarifier or an alum product may be needed.
  8. Sedimentary materials composed of fine or intermediate sized mineral particles.
  9. As a soil separate, individual mineral particles that range in diameter from the upper limit of clay (0.002 millimeter) to the lower limit of very fine sand (0.05 millimeter). As a soil textural class, soil that is 80 percent or more silt and less than 12 percent clay.
  10. Substrate particles smaller than sand and larger than clay.
  11. Fine particles of sand or rock that can be picked up by the air or water and deposited as sediment.
  12. A fine-grained sediment having a particle size intermediate between that of fine sand and clay.
  13. Soil particles between 0.002 mm and 0.05 mm (in some countries 0.06 mm is the upper size limit), with high or medium-high specific area influencing stability of soil structure; also used as a texture class name for medium and medium-fine soil materials.
  14. Soil inorganic particles in the 0.002-0.02 mm size range, smaller than sand but larger than clay. Silt, which washes off the land into a body of water, can settle out of the water and smother benthic organisms such as oysters.
  15. The fine-grained portion of soil that is nonplastic or very slightly plastic and that exhibits little or no strength when air dry. Nonplastic soil which passes a No. 200 United States Standard sieve. A soil composed of particles between 1/256 mm and 1/16 mm in diameter. ...
  16. A soil component consisting of moderately sized particles (0.002 to 0.05 mm diameter). Silt particles provide a moderate amount of surface area for adsorption of molecules, providing some resistance to leaching of charged molecules. ...
  17. a particle of rock/mineral with a diameter between 0.01 and 0.1mm.
  18. inorganic sediment particles between 3.9 and 62.5 μm in diameter; 'siltation' is the process of being covered by or embedded in silt
  19. Soil particles in between sand and clay in size. Silt feels like flour (smooth and velvety). Also refers to a soil texture that consists of at least 80% silt particles.
  20. Particles of dirt in ponds, lakes, rivers, streams, and marshes. Silt moves around a lot when it is disturbed. Too much silt in the water is a problem, since it can cover and destroy eggs of fish, amphibians, and other organisms.
  21. fine rock particles, 0.004-0.08 mm (0.00015-0.003 inches) in diameter.
  22. The fine sediment in a river bed that fills holes and the spaces between rocks.
  23. A fine soil particle with sizes within the range 0.075mm and 0.002mm.
  24. A soil separate consisting of particles between 0.05 and 0.002 mm in equivalent diameter.
  25. detrital, clay-rich sediment with a particle size of 1/16-1/256 mm. range.
