A method that enables good estimates to be made of total sediment load has been tested with data from several western streams. The method, which uses both theoretical and empirical formulas, combines a modification of Einstein's procedure for computing bed‐material load and the usually available data from suspended‐sediment measurements. Basic data, including data from large natural and artificial turbulent flumes, and the results of computations are given.
