Relationships between suspended sediment load discharge and the total number and length of stream segments

  The discharge of suspended sediment load is an important indicator for estimating the intensity of erosional processes in drainage basins, but the laborious methodology required to establish it accounts for the small number of measurement stations. Therefore indirect evaluation methods, have been used, such as the number of stream segments and the sum of their lengths has been established by means of...
