Effects of sedimentation in low-gradient aquatic systems are complex and difficult to measure directly. Often, surrogate variables are required to relate different ecosystem components such as habitat, biota, water quality, clean and dirty sediment, geomor- phology, and Size: KB.

Indeed, storms large enough to reshape channel morphology can have long-lasting effects on sediment and turbidity concentrations and aquatic biota. This framework for integrating temporal and spatial point measurements using high frequency monitoring and watershed modeling appears to hold great promise to inform policy concerning the water.
