The effects of floods in the Sacramento River basin were investigated by analyzing hydrograph characteristics, estimating event-based sediment discharges and reach erosion/deposition through its bypass system and observing sediment patterns with field data. The AA. utilized flow and sediment concentration data from 13 gauging stations in and around the bypas system to assess the impact of a single, large flood on suspended load transport to and storage within flood bypasses. They then focus the discussion on the entrance of Yolo Bypass, for which they provide various sources of data to investigate sedimentation patterns
