AbstractThe relation of sediment yield with climate for selected watersheds west of the Great Plains is evaluated in four regression models, each model representing a separate climatic zone. Evaluation of the estimated sediment yield probability distributions assesses , the relative likelihood of sediment yield occurrence. Desert climates produce maximal sediment yields. Sediment yields from forest climates are relatively high, a reaction thought to be caused by efficient sediment transport systems associated with mountainous terrain.
