In this paper, the AA. present a methodology to construct a sediment budget for meso-scale catchments. They combine extensive field surveys and expert knowledge of the catchment with a sediment delivery model. The meso-scale Mediterranean drainage basin of the Dragonja (91 km2), southwest Slovenia, was chosen as case study area. The sediment budget presented is based on spatially distributed, detailed on-site measurements of bed erosion and bank erosion, modelled hillslope sediment flux, and measurements of transport of fine and coarse sediment, as well as of floodplain and terrace deposition. The results imply a build-up of sediment in the valleys catchment. However, extreme flood events may flush large amounts of sediment stored in the lower parts of the system
