Abstract

This study investigates the ability of the Shields relation to predict the initiation of sediment transport by overland flow on desert hillslopes. The Shields relation is evaluated using data collected from a series of overland flow experiments on runoff plots in southern Arizona. Because the data deviate in a systematic manner from the Shields relation, alternative threshold relations are developed and discussed
