Abstract

The understanding of the transport of cohesive sediments in flowing waters is one of the major tasks in fluvial hydrology. The bulk of material is transported during events as suspended particulate matter, but a continuous exchange with the river bottom and its interaction with the transport mechanisms of coarse material make it difficult to distinguish between different processes. From the water chemistry point of view highest concentrations of dissolved solids normally occur under dry weather flow conditions, when the concentrations of suspended particulate matter are lowest and the river bottom is supposed to behave as a sink. What is insignificant for the transport of most of the material can be crucial for understanding the fluxes between water body, suspended particles and river bottom.
