Title: Constituent loads in small streams: the process and problems of estimating sediment flux
Author: Thomas, R. B.;
Source: EOS, Transactions, American Geophysical Union 70(43): 1105-1106
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: Constituent loads in small streams are often estimated poorly. This is especially true for discharge-related constituents like sediment, since their flux is highly variable and mainly occurs during infrequent high-flow events. One reason for low-quality estimates is that most prevailing data collection methods ignore sampling probabilities and only partly account for variations in constituent flow
