Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper develops a simple method of predicting sediment removal during snowmelt and flashfloods in Alkali Creek watershed, western Colorado. The method links successful runoff simulations to field-monitored sediment relationships to predict site yield. The yield data are differenced to derive an index of scour and fill, from which it is possible to infer the patterns of erosion and deposition that the simulated events might produce across the watershed
