Abstract

To compare the relative value of measuring versus computing bed-material discharges, the bed-material discharge of Muddy Creek was determined on 35 occasions for water discharges ranging from 0.15 to 1.57m3/s by separately sampling the suspended- and bedload-sediment discharges. Measured bed-material discharges were statistically indistinguishable from flume data collected under the same flow conditions. This agreement indicates that the measured bed-material discharges are reasonable estimates of the true values. -Author
