Abstract:

Total sediment transport load of Goodwin Creek was calculated for the period from 10/1/84 to 9/30/88 using transport relations derived from sample data for the fines (< 0.06 mm), sand (0.06 - 2 mm), and gravel (> 2 mm). Calculation methods used are outlined and a preliminary comparison is made between the derived bed load transport relation and published transport relations.
