Suspended sediment load estimation and the problem of inadequate data sampling : a fractal view

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Use the notion of fractal theory to obtain important information regarding the possibility of temporal transformation of sediment load data is the subject of this study. As a first step, daily suspended sediment load data observed in the Mississippi River basin at St. Louis, Missouri, are studied. The presence of fractal behaviour is investigated using 5 different methods, ranging from general to specific and from mono-fractal to multi-fractal. The results indicate the presence of multi-fractal behaviour in the suspended sediment load data, suggesting the possibility of transformation of data from one scale to another using a multi-dimensional model
