Kinsey-Henderson AE, Post DA, Bartley R, Hawdon A (2005) Modelling a spatially distributed sediment delivery ratio.
Walling's (1983) relationship between sediment delivery ratio and drainage area predicts that the study catchments should have sediment delivery ratios generally >80% (see below also).
This fraction is the sediment delivery ratio (SDR) and is defined by Robinson (1977) as `the percentage of the sediment delivered at a location on the stream system to the gross erosion of the basin', where SDR (%) is inversely proportional to catchment area and gross erosion is the sum of all forms of erosion in the contributing catchment including gully, rill, and sheet erosion.
