Description :
The aim of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a simple, time-integrated suspended sediment sampler based on the design of Phillips et al.(2000) for the collection of representative samples of the daily suspended sediment yield and median grain size in a small, dynamic High Arctic river. The ability of the traps to capture a sample representative of the ambient conditions is critically assessed, as well as a modified deployment approach that was implemented to compensate for the strong diurnal and seasonal stage variation in the river stage.
