Suspended sediment load transport in the Mississippi River basin at St. Louis : temporal scaling and nonlinear determinism

Description :
This study investigates the dynamic behaviour of suspended sediment load transport at different temporal scales in the Mississippi River basin. Data corresponding to 5 successively doubled temporal scales (i.e. daily, two-day, four day, eight day, and 16-day) from the St. Louis gauging station in Missouri are analyzed. The investigation is focused on identifying possible low-dimensional deterministic behavior in the suspended sediment load transport dynamics, with an aim towards reduction in model complexity. The correlation dimension method is used to identify low-dimensional determinism.
