Figures and Tables from this paper

In this study a conceptual model of sediment sources, erosion, and transport processes was developed and sediment-transport studies were conducted in the upper Yuba River watershed located in
Reconstructing depositional processes and history from reservoir stratigraphy: Englebright Lake, Yuba River, northern California
[1] Reservoirs provide the opportunity to link watershed history with its stratigraphic record. We analyze sediment cores from a northern California reservoir in the context of hydrologic history,
Effects of placer mining on suspended sediment budget: case study of north of Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula
Abstract Placer mines are located in river valleys, along river benches, or along the pathways of ancient channels. Open-pit mining alters the stream hydrology and enhances sediment transport. The
Use of Sediment Rating Curves and Optical Backscatter Data to Characterize Sediment Transport in the Upper Yuba River Watershed, California, 2001-03:
Sediment transport in the upper Yuba River watershed, California, was evaluated from October 2001 through September 2003. This report presents results of a three-year study by the U.S. Geological
Predicting the distribution of bed material accumulation using river network sediment budgets
Assessing the spatial distribution of bed material accumulation in river networks is important for determining the impacts of erosion on downstream channel form and habitat and for planning erosion
Estimating floodplain sedimentation in the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, CA
We present a conceptual and analytical framework for predicting the spatial distribution of floodplain sedimentation for the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, CA. We assess the role of the


Estimating accumulation rates and physical properties of sediment behind a dam: Englebright Lake, Yuba River, northern California
Studies of reservoir sedimentation are vital to understanding scientific and management issues related to watershed sediment budgets, depositional processes, reservoir operations, and dam
A sediment budget and an analysis of geomorphic process in the Van Duzen River basin, north coastal California, 1941–1975: Summary
The coastal river basins of the northern California Coast Ranges have the highest sediment discharge of basins of comparable size with the United States (Judson and Ritter, 1964; Brown and Ritter,
The sediment budget in severely disturbed watersheds, Queen Charlotte Ranges, British Columbia
Sediment budgets, averaged over one or more decades, have been estimated for four small (3.9 to l2.6 km2) drainage basins in the Queen Charlotte Islands for periods before and after clear-cut logging
Sediment transfer and transformation of an alluvial valley floor: the river South Tyne, Northumbria, U.K.
The amounts of alluvial storage and the mechanisms responsible for the dispersal of sediment associated with historic metal mining are examined for a 115 year timespan on a 22 km reach of the River

large deposits of hydraulic gold mining sediment remain in main channels of the Bear River more than 100 years after the cessation of mining. This study examines these deposits and reevaluates
Stochastic model for the long‐term transport of stored sediment in a river channel
We develop a stochastic model for the transport of stored sediment down a river channel. The model is based on probabilities of transition of particles among four different sediment storage
Patterns of Sediment Slug Translation and Dispersion Following Typhoon-Induced Disturbance, Oyabu Creek, Kyushu, Japan
A six‐year monitoring programme characterized the migration/dispersion patterns of sediment slugs generated following typhoon‐induced disturbances in 1993 and 1997 along a single‐thread gravel‐bed
