Predicting Bedload Transport in Gravel-bed Streams:
Computation and Field Techniques (Bedload)
Hosted in coordination with
University of Colorado,
Johns Hopkins University,
Colorado State University,
USFS Stream Team
Objectives & Description:
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to...
- understand the fundamentals of sediment transport modeling
with special emphasis on gravel-bed streams;
- explain sources of error in making transport estimates;
- understand the data needed and evaluate the different options
available for making transport estimates based on objectives
and data availability.
- learn to use the BAGS (Bedload Assessment for Gravel-bed
Streams) software that includes six bedload transport equations;
- understand how to select an appropriate model and how to
evaluate the reasonableness of outputs.
- learn how to collect field data needed to run bedload equations;
- gain an improved understanding of bedload samplers, including
bedload traps and Helley-Smith samplers.
This course is a combination of lectures, computer labs, and

Dropping from the Workshop:
Tuition is low for this workshop consequently there is not much
leeway on letting people drop. If you are registered, check with
us first, just in case we have a waiting list. If there is not
a waiting list, you will need to find a substitute or pay fixed
costs. The budget has been set and spent based on current confirmation.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
