Title: Sediment budgets as an organizing framework in fluvial geomorphology

Author: Reid, Leslie; Dunne, Thomas;

Date: 2016

Source: In: Kondolf, G.M.; Piégay, H., eds. Tools in Fluvial Geomorphology. Chichester, UK: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd: 357-379. Chapter 16

Publication Series: Book Chapter

Description:

Sediment budgets describe the input, transport, storage, and export of sediment in a geomorphic system. Such budgets can be used to address questions regarding how changes in catchment conditions affect channels, how long the effects will last, and what the sequence of responses will be. This chapter defines and describes budget components, outlines strategies and procedures for quantifying components, and provides a guide to published descriptions of various aspects of sediment budget construction.

Keywords: sediment budget, channel form, sediment transport, cumulative watershed effect
