The “Selection At List Time” (SALT) scheme controls sampling of concentration for estimating total suspended sediment yield. The probability of taking a sample is proportional to its estimated contribution to total suspended sediment discharge. This procedure gives unbiased estimates of total suspended sediment yield and the variance of the estimate while automatically emphasizing sampling at higher flows. When applied to real data with known yield, the SALT method underestimated total… Expand
