Sediment load reductions to meet suspended and deposited sediment thresholds

Publication date:  September 2019
Publication reference number:  CR 363

This NIWA report describes hydrological modelling that estimates the suspended sediment load reductions required to meet proposed suspended sediment attribute bottom lines. Model outputs are available on our data service.

The report also describes an attempt to model relationships between suspended sediment load and in-stream areal coverage of deposited fine sediment.
