Dissolved Oxygen (DO)

A measure of the amount of free or molecular oxygen dissolved in water, expressed as:

  1. mg/L, which is the absolute amount of oxygen dissolved in the water mass or
  2. the percentage saturation of water with O2 (% sat).

Double Layer Compression

In the double layer compression mechanism large quantities of a salt that has no charge (neutral) are added. The salt works by compressing the double layer around the colloid. When the outer layer is compressed, the repulsive energy barrier around the colloid is reduced or eliminated. This allows the particles to combine.
