Abstract

The complexity of hydrologic and physical environments and man's ever-increasing data needs make it essential for those who collect sediment data to be aware of basic concepts involved in the processes of erosion, transport, and deposition of sediment, and of the equipment and procedures necessary to representatively sample sediment and measure its concentration. This report describes equipment and procedures for the collection and measurement of fluvial sediment.
