Testing bedload transport formulae using morphologic transport estimates and field data : lower Fraser River, British Columbia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Morphologic transport estimates available for a 65-km stretch of Fraser River over the period 1952-1999 provide a unique opportunity to evaluate the performance of bedload transport formulae for a large river over decadal time scales. Formulae tested in this paper include the original and rational versions of the Bagnold formula, the Meyer-Peter and Muller formula and a stream power correlation. The formulae differ in their sensitivity to input variables and between reaches. Average annual bedload transport predictions for the 4 formulae show that they vary between each other as well as from the morphologic transport estimates
