    Description

    Flow charts are a widely used means of diagramming relationships among transport processes and storage sites during analyses of sediment routing. Because they have taken so many different forms, however, it is very difficult to use published flow charts to compare geomorphic systems. Though they generally are constructed to achieve the same purpose, flow charts differ in the definition of the material being transported, type of transport processes involved, and the kinds of landscape elements considered to be sediment storage sites
