Abstract

All available data on suspended sediment concentration and sediment discharge for Central Asian rivers have been used to estimate the small grained sediment discharge from glaciated areas. Glacial streams discharge the bulk of suspended material during the period of intensive melting (July to September). There is a good exponential relationship between sediment concentration (or sediment discharge) and air temperature over glaciers. Yearly sediment run-off for glacial rivers in the Pamir and Tien Shan has been computed.
