Abstract

In this study, a new technique for identifying the source of suspended sediment is described, based on a comparison of overall grain-size distributions. Suspended sediment flux (SSF) supplied from sediment generated by logging and deposited on hillslopes, and that from unpaved road surface, were obtained in the Hiyamizusawa Brook basin, Hokkaido. The ratio between SSF from deposited sediment fines (DSF) and that from suspended sediment in the road surface flow (SSR), i.e. the ratio DSF:SSR, was estimated from grain-size distributions of the river-suspended sediment based on nonparametric statistical tests
