Abstract:An account is given of the development of a boat-borne system suitable for measuring near-bed suspended sand fluxes in deep fast flows. The under-water part of the system comprises a frame designed to rest on the river or sea-bed and supporting current meters and pump samples at three levels over the bottom 0.6m of the flow. Field trials of the new system are described and confirm that it will offer distinct advantages in its ease of handling and operation when current drag is excessive.
