Topic Sediment: Upper Middle Trinity - Sediment Input vs. Output 1981-2001
Caption:  This chart shows a comparison between the mean annual sediment inputs and the sediment transport at the lower end of each tributary basin for sub-watersheds in the Upper Middle Trinity Planning Watershed. Graham Matthews and Associates (2001) state: the average annual differences are generally 10-15% of the mean annual total, with the exception of two tributaries, Rush Creek and Weaver Creek. In all cases, tributary transport is less than the sediment inputs, suggesting that either the inputs are somewhat too high, or, and more likely, that there is sediment storage occurring in the system. Data are from GMA's Trinity River Sediment Source Analysis (2001). See Info Links for further background information.
