This thesis documents a methodology for simulation of sediment yield from mountainous watersheds. A three step process is involved. First, the available sediment-discharge data is regressed to develop a predictive relationship. Then a flow simulation model is calibrated for use on the watershed under study. Finally, the flow simulation model and sediment- discharge equation are combined so that flow simulation results are used in the sediment-discharge equation to predict sediment yield.
