Abstract

Dissolved sediment yield is greater than suspended sediment yield in almost all the basins and with a ratio varying from 0.7 to 6.8. This may show that the dominant geomorphological process in this environment is chemical rather than mechanical erosion or that factors such as the nature of the farming system exist which inhibit the delivery of suspended sediments obtained from basin slopes to river channels
