Sediment Yield

"reaching a crescendo of geomorphic enthusiasm"

We will devote spring quarter to reading papers that discuss sediment yield (of any type, over any scale, in any place). The group discussion will then focus on the meaning, usefullness and significance of these measurements over varying temporal and spatial scales. This leaves a wide open door for choice of papers.

Copies of the papers will be available at the seminar, or in Wilkinson (WLKN) 208 or in Forestry Sciences Lab (FSL) 287. Some papers may be available as pdf and will be posted below.
