Title: Sediment transport and resulting deposition in spawning gravels, north coastal California

Author: Lisle, Thomas E.;

Date: 1989

Source: Water Resources Research 25(6): 1303-1319.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Incubating salmonid eggs in streambeds are often threatened by deposition of fine sediment within the gravel. To relate sedimentation of spawning gravel beds to sediment transport, infiltration of fine sediment (<2 mm in diameter) into clean gravel beds, bed material size distributions, scour-fill depths, and sediment transport during 10 storm flow events were measured in three streams of north coastal California.

Keywords: PSW4351, Caspar Creek, salmonid, streambeds, sedimentation, fine sediment, gravel beds, bed topgraphy, watersheds
