Figure 2. Upper panel shows sediment transported per day and lower panel shows hydrographs (thin black line), mean daily discharge (thin grey line), mean daily monsoon discharge (wider grey line), and annual flood (dotted line; 1 yr recurrence interval, or the lowest maximum annual discharge during the period of record; this is what Wolman and Miller that the effective discharge is for eastern US rivers) for station 4 in 1963 (left) and station 87 in 1971 (right). In addition, the sediment transport curves show that majority of sediment is transported during the monsoon. Instead of 90% of sediment being transported in 10% of the time, here it is in 33% of the time. These years and stations are typical among the stations analyzed.
