AbstractApplication of jet erosion tests (JETs) to study in situ erodibility is gaining popularity. New versions of the JET (original JET versus mini-JET) and new data analysis techniques have introduced questions regarding their operation and data collection procedures. One of the major issues regarding JETs is the high degree of variability of the erodibility parameters (i.e., erodibility coefficient, kd, and critical shear stress, τc). This variability has been attributed to heterogeneity in… 
Estimating Erodibility Parameters for Streambanks with Cohesive Soils Using the Mini Jet Test Device: A Comparison of Field and Computational Methods
