Abstract

In extremely arid, rocky, high relief watersheds, coarse fluvial sediment, if initially entrained, tends to group itself in well defined waves which move discretly downstream. Above a certain threshold determined by stream power this movement is relatively independant of the water discharge. Data pertaining to the transport of fluvial sediment sampled in detail during a five hour long event in a small upland stream channel in the extremely arid southern Negev are presented.
