    Description

    Predicting bedload transport rates is useful for many reasons, but accurate predictions are difficult to make. At the Caspar Creek Experimental Watersheds, a long-term monitoring site in a coast redwood forest in northern California, we wish to know how bedload transport responds to logging and sediment input such as landslides. To complete such analysis requires being able to accurately measure and predict bedload transport yields. Here, we focus on developing an approach to reconstruct an 18-year record of annual bedload yields for the North Fork of Caspar Creek and compare the reconstructed yields to predictions from the Wilcock 2-faction bedload transport model.
