Description :
A small catchment has been monitored in the high Gallego river basin (Central Spanish Pyrenees). The results show the great importance of autumn and occasional summer rainstorms for the sediment output. Sediment transport is negligible in winter and adds little to the total volume during spring. Moreover, during the snowmelt, sediments are finer than those produced by rainstorms due to the hydrologic conditions and the different sediment sources.
