CHAPTER 11 MOVEMENT OF SEDIMENT BY THE WIND

transport by water, it is broadly true that larger particles are more difficult to move than finer particles—silts are moved much more readily than gravels, for example—but the weakness of this effect is highlighted by the nearly equal mobility of a wide range of sand to gravel sizes in many flow settings, as discussed in Chapter 14.

Impacts of Sand Mining

In gravel-rich streams, effects downstream of mining sites may be short-lived when mining ends, because the balance between sediment input and transport at a site can reestablish itself relatively quickly. Effects in gravel-poor streams may develop rapidly …

Experimental study of the transport of mixed sand and gravel

Each mixture used the same gravel, and sand was added to produce mixtures containing 6, 15, 21, 27, and 34% sand. Control of other variables allows us to isolate the effect of bed sand content on transport. As sand content increases, gravel transport rates increase by orders of magnitude, even though the proportion of gravel in the bed decreases.
