    This book is divided into four parts: Part 1 is entitled "A Short History of Sediment Transport"; Part 2 deals with the "Hydrodynamics of Fluid-Particle Systems"; Part 3 is concerned with the "Sediment Transport in Open Channels"; and Part 4 describes the "Sediment Transport in Closed Pipes." The intent of this book was to make each part as self-contained as possible which has made this an. sediment-transport modeling, and the modeled results were used to develop regression equations between basin area and sediment yield. The regression equations were then used to estimate the sediment yields for seven other basins of similar size, topography and underlying geology that drain to the Rio Grande between the Rio Puerco and San Acacia.

The axial basins are in the form of half-grabens that are tilted strongly toward the east or the west, depending on the location of the master fault.

Water-quality assessment of the Rio Grande Valley, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas: organic compounds and trace elements in bed sediment and fish Author: Lisa F. Carter. Results of a laboratory modeling study are presented for excluding bed load sediment from a diversion/intake structure on the Rio Grande in Albuquerque, New Mexico. To achieve model similitude, crushed coal was used to model the prototype sediment in a scaled model with an exaggerated slope such that shear force is adequately modeled.

The Rio Grande is the fourth longest river in North America, flowing nearly 2, miles from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico. In New Mexico it occupies the Rio Grande Valley, where it provides water for habitat, agriculture, and a growing population.5/5(5).

Sediment supply versus local hydraulic controls on sediment transport and storage in a river with large sediment loads. The Rio Grande in the Big Bend region of Texas, USA, and Chihuahua and Coahuila, Mexico, undergoes rapid geomorphic changes as a result of its large sediment supply and variable hydrology; thus, it is a useful natural laboratory to investigate the relative importance of flow strength.
