CURRENT METHODS USED IN THE SOIL CONSERVATION SERVICE TO ESTIMATE SEDIMENT YIELD
The four basic procedures currently used in the Soil Conservation Service to estimate sediment yield depending on the environment and available data are (1) gross erosion and sediment delivery ratio estimates, (2) predictive equations, (3) suspended sediment load measurements and (4) sediment accumulation measurements. Use of more than one method for verification is explained.
