Abstract

The Nahal Yatir Bedload Transport Database arises from the Northern Negev River Sediment Monitoring Programme and represents the first body of bedload information to be collected during flash floods in desert gravel‐bed streams. Bedload flux was established automatically with three slot‐samplers of the Birkbeck type. This was complemented by hydraulic measurements that allow sediment transport to be rated against channel average shear stress and specific stream power. Bed material and bedload grain‐size distributions are also provided. The database is given in both printed and electronic tabular format.
