Abstract

Suspended sediment concentration measurements were undertaken for 10 months in selected stream discharge measuring stations within the Pra Basin by coupling dip and integrated sampling approaches. Samples were analyzed using the evaporation method. Daily mean suspended sediment concentration was calculated from which monthly and annual suspended sediment yields were derived. Suspended sediment concentration and sediment yield were found to be very high
