Development of an uncertainty framework for suspended sediment loads in rivers
Concentrations of suspended solids are monitored in many river systems worldwide. However, these monitoring programmes differ considerably in terms of monitoring techniques, measuring intervals and sampling locations within the river. This leads to uncertainties in load estimations around the globe. This thesis investigates the influence of sampling intervals on uncertainties in sediment loads, and derives how these uncertainties differ on a global scale.
