Abstract: In order to provide an understanding of transport patterns, historical suspended sediment data collected by TVA in the late 1930s were computerized and entered onto WATSTORE. Frequent samples were obtained from approximately 50 watershed locations over three or more years. Graphical and statistical analyses of the resulting daily timeseries data were made. Some attempts to simulate the data with a daily timescale basin water budget and sediment source model were made. A strategy for combining field data with hydrologic/sediment models is suggested for non-point source and adsorbed contaminant transport studies.
