Title: A progress report on suspended sediment in several western Oregon and western Washington streams.

Author: Barton, Manes.;

Date: 1951

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 75, p. 1-19

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Streams transport their loads by traction (the bed load) in suspension (the suspended load) and as salts in solution (the solution load). The total load is the sum of these three and is commonly called the water quality. The amounts of and variation in stream flow and water quality have become in the past few years accepted criteria for evaluating watershed conditions. Although many of the fundamental relationships between soil, cover and water are known, much remains to be ascertained. Such is the case with suspended sediment loads. That is why the Division of Flood Control Surveys, Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station in cooperation with the Siskiyou-Cascade Research Center and others conducted a suspended sediment load study of fifteen streams in Oregon and Washington during the first nine months of the 1951 water year.
