Sediment transport load in the Onyx River, Wright Valley
Entry ID: K164_1984_1985_NZ_1

Abstract: The sediment transport load in the Onyx River was investigated. The bedload transport rates were used in association with the 15 year flow record, to estimate sandur sedimentation rates. 38 cross sections were established on six neighbouring branches in a braided reach of the river. The branches were chosen to give a full range of channel sizes and discharges (up to 4m3/s). Five to six sections ... View entire text
