Correction to "A general power equation for predicting bed load transport rates in gravel bed rivers"


Barry, Jeffrey J.; Buffington, John M.; King, John G. 2007. Correction to "A general power equation for predicting bed load transport rates in gravel bed rivers". Water Resources Research. 43: W08702. doi:10.1029/2007WR006103. 4 p.

In the paper "A general power equation for predicting bed load transport rates in gravel bed rivers" by Jeffrey J. Barry et al. (Water Resources Research, 40, W10401, doi:10.1029/2004WR003190, 2004), the y axis for Figures 5 and 10 was incorrectly labeled and should have read "log10 (predicted transport) - log10 (observed transport)." In addition, flow depth (D) is incorrectly shown in the denominator of equation (A9) of Barry et al. [2004] and should be replaced by di, the mean particle diameter for the ith size class as shown. [2] Similarly, equation (A24) of Barry et al. [2004] incorrectly includes the modal grain size from the subsurface material (dmss) which should be replaced with dmqb, the modal grain size of a given bed load transport observation.

Keywords: bed load transport, gravel bed rivers, sediment, streamflow
