Abstract

The yield and transport of erosion material in natural catchments result from erosion processes, and it is affected bу numerous physicalgeographical parameters. The general intensity of the sediment balance along the hydrographic network of а stream is analysed based on the sediment transport through one or more cross sections in the hydrographic network of the catchment or bу the calculation of the intensity of silting up of the storages on the watercourse. The hydraulic transport of suspended sediment was researched in Mt. Goc waters and it was defined based on the hydrological and psammological measurements which were performed in cooperation with RHMZ of Serbia, bу field research, as well as based on the previous scientific reports.
