Title: The Use of Flow Charts in Sediment Routing Analysis

Author: Reid, Leslie M.;

Date: 1982

Source: In: Sediment Budgets and Routing in Forested Drainage Basins: Proceedings of the Symposium; 31 May - 1 June 1982; Corvallis, Oregon. Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-141. Portland, Oregon: Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture; 1982: 154-156.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Flow charts are a widely used means of diagramming relationships among transport processes and storage sites during analyses of sediment routing. Because they have taken so many different forms, however, it is very difficult to use published flow charts to compare geomorphic systems. Though they generally are constructed to achieve the same purpose, flow charts differ in the definition of the material being transported, type of transport processes involved, and the kinds of landscape elements considered to be sediment storage sites

Keywords: PSW4351, sediment routing, geomorphology, flow charts, landslides, channels, sediment budge
