Overview of Watershed and Channel Sedimentation

Overview of Watershed and Channel Sedimentation
  1. Summarize the primary sedimentation processes described in published studies.
  2. Identify and describe river and watershed features that indicate sediment processes such as erosion and deposition.
  3. Explain the relationship between sediment supply/movement and precipitation, including precipitation rate, timing, and form.
  4. Describe the impact of human activity and infrastructure on the sedimentation process.
  5. Describe the role of climate and weather in the watershed sedimentation process.
  6. Outline the possible changes to sediment supply, transport, and deposition in a changing climate, including uncertainties and the currently observed trends.
