Abstract

Maps are presented of the spatial distribution of two-dimensional bedload transport velocity vectors. Bedload velocity data were collected using the bottom tracking feature of an acoustic Doppler current profiler (aDcp) in both a gravel-bed reach and a sand-bed reach of Fraser River, British Columbia. This new technique yields noisy data; thus data smoothing is required, and the AA. present their methods for doing so. Finally, maps of bedload velocity are produced and compared to measured distributions of bedload transport rate, shear stress, and water velocity
