Title Review of sediment data in the South Platte River Basin, Colorado, 1980-92
Creator Heiny, Janet S.
Subject Water quality; Sediments (Geology); Runoff
Spatial Coverage South Platte River (Colo. and Neb.); Nebraska; Colorado
Description Suspended-sediment transport and its relation to water quality are important issues in the South Platte River Basin. Most sediment enters the South Platte River during snowmelt runoff from March to June. The suspended sediment varies by particle size, concentration, and load. Suspended-sediment data in the South Platte River for water years 1980 to 1992 are limited; therefore, only generalizations can be made concerning land use and its effects on suspended-sediment concentrations and loads in the South Platte River. More data are needed before detailed comparisons can be made.
