Title: Effects of sediment transport on survival of salmonid embryos in a natural stream: A simulation approach

Author: Lisle, Thomas E.; Lewis, Jack;

Date: 1992

Source: Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences 49(11): 2337-2344.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A model is presented that simulates the effects of streamflow and sediment transport on survival of salmonid embryos incubating in spawning gravels in a natural channel. Components of the model include a 6-yr streamflow record, an empirical bed load-transport function, a relation between transport and infiltration of sandy bedload into a gravel bed, effects of fine-sediment infiltration on gravel properties, and functions relating embryo survival to gravel properties.

Keywords: PSW4351, sediment transport, salmonid, stream, natural channel, streamflow, bed load transport, fine sediment
