Measurement of bedload in rivers in Erosion and sediment yield : some methods of measurement and modelling.

Auteur :
EMMETT, W. W.

Description :
Only in recent years have bed load data for rivers existed in sufficient quantity and reliability to facilitate a better understanding of the bedload transport process. Data for the East Fork River, Wyoming indicate that when sand-size particles are dominant as bedload the bed load accounts for about half the total load. The examples of the Tanana, Snake and Clearwater Rivers indicate that for gravel bed rivers the bed load probably accounts for less than 10 % of the total load.
