  • Suspended sediment loads across the gravel sand

    Rivers draining the largest mountain ranges on the planet carry huge quantities of sediment most of which is ultimately delivered to the sea hundreds to thousands of kilometres downstream As sediment is transported downstream by rivers it undergoes a series of transformations but in virtually all rivers an abrupt transition in river bed grain size from gravel to sand occurs also known as
