Abstract : This document provides guidance on methods to estimate watershed sediment yield. It also reviews procedures for estimating the inflowing sediment load and gradation for use in sediment assessments or mobile boundary hydraulic and sedimentation studies. The focus is on development of data for HEC-6. HEC-6 is a numerical model that can be used for the prediction of sediment movement and deposition in rivers and reservoirs. References are provided throughout this document for sources of information and data. Readers are encouraged to check these sources.
