IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Evaluation of bed load transport processes in steep channels based on tracer stone data
Author : GABRIELE HARB(1), GABRIEL SPREITZER(1) & JOSEF SCHNEIDER(1)
ABSTRACT
Torrential floods combined with sediment transport processes presents major hazards to human life and infrastructure in
Alpine Catchments. Despite the importance of sediment transport due to the large damage caused in case of flood events,
we lack data on sediment movement in steep channels and torrents to improve the understanding of sediment transport
processes in steep channel.
This paper presents the measurement system in an Alpine catchment in Austria consisting of meteorological stations,
runoff gauges and tracer stones. In addition sediment availability, mobilization and accumulation have been mapped and
quantified by means of laser scanning and terrestrial photogrammetry.
This contribution focuses on field measurements of bed load transport processes in steep channels based on tracer stone
data, bed load measurements, precipitation and discharge data. The measurement data was compared to several
sediment transport formulae for steep slopes.
