Summary In hydraulic response terms, the total clastic load of a river is comprised of wash load and bed material load components. Bed material load includes sediment moving as actual bed load and as suspended material originating from the bed. Classical suspended sediment rating curves do not differentiate between wash load and suspended bed material and their indiscriminant use can therefore lead to ambiguous results. Wash load must be delineated from the total suspension when using a rating… CONTINUE READING
