    Hardware and software supporting a sediment sampling procedure--Sampling At List Time (SALT) have been perfected. SALT provides estimates of sediment discharge having improved accuracy and estimable precision. Although the greatest benefit of SALT may accrue to those attempting to monitor ""flashy"" small streams, its superior statistical properties should improve any suspended sediment monitoring program
