Abstract

This paper introduces and evaluates a novel method for ascertaining the grain-size distribution of subsurface sediments that involves profoundly less sampling effort than standard methods. It is based on hybrid sampling principles previously applied to the construction of synthetic surface grain-size distributions. The method is developed from an empirical demonstration of the approximate similarity of surface and subsurface grain-size distributions when compared over a common range of sizes. Subsurface hybrid models are found to provide good facsimilies of grain-size distributions using standard criteria. The technique is presented as an expedient alternative to standard methods for large, perennial gravel-bed rivers
