Description :
In this paper travel distance will be used to refer to horizontal distances. A particle movement such as rainsplash or fluvial bedload transport shows at least the potential for variations in travel distance with grain size. Experimental data also show a considerable dispersion in the travel distances within each grain size class. This behaviour also contrasts strongly with that for a mass movement. Transporting capacity cannot generally be measured directly, but must be derived from the experimental data by subsequent analysis. This derivation is seen to be a critical step in gaining a better understanding of process mechanisms, and forms the focus of this paper.
