Title: Workshop on sediment budgets and routing in forested drainage basins: proceedings.

Author: Swanson, Frederick J.; Janda, Richard J.; Dunne, Thomas; Swanston, Douglas N. tech. eds.;

Date: 1982

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Sediment budgets quantify the transport and storage of soil and sediment in drainage basins or smaller landscape units. Studies of sediment routing deal with the overall movement of soil and sediment through a series of landscape units. The 14 papers and 5 summaries from discussion groups in this volume report results of sediment budget and routing studies conducted principally in forested drainage basins. Papers also deal with sediment routing studies using computer models, physical models, and field observations in nonforest environments.

This work emphasizes methods for judging the relative importance of sediment sources within a basin, the many roles of biological factors in sediment transport and storage, and the importance of recognizing changes of sediment storage within basins when interpreting sediment yield. Sediment budget and routing studies are important tools for both research scientists and land managers.

Keywords: Sedimentation, watershed management, sediment budget, drainage basins, geomorphology.
