13:00 - 17:00

Tuscany # 5

Chair: Molly Wood, USGS; Tim Straub, USGS; Roger Kuhnle, USDA ARS; Rob Hilldale, USBR; James Selegean, USACE


This short course would cover highlights of selected sediment surrogate techniques being used or funded for evaluation by the Federal Interagency Sedimentation Project Technical Committee (FISP TC). FISP TC members will present the operational status, use cases, and procedural highlights of each technique. The short course agenda may change but is expected to include:

  1. Introduction (0.25 hour):
  2. Surrogates for suspended sediment (1.5 hours):
  1. Break (0.25 hour)
  2. Surrogates for bedload sediment (1.5 hours):
  1. Open panel discussion on future research needs in sediment surrogates (0.5 hour)
