- This paper provides preliminary calibrations of the amount of sediment trapped by meltwater intake structures on two proglacial streams. The calibrations permit the estimation of suspended sediment and bedload yield over prolonged periods and are used with more traditional monitoring techniques to characterise and explain differences in sediment yield from two adjacent glacier basins.
