Abstract

The estimation of sediment transport has aroused our interest in this work because it is a liability to the conservation of the ecological environment and the protection of hydraulic structures against siltation sediments. The adopted methodology consists in (i) studying the evolution of the suspended sediment concentrations according to the water discharge, (ii) establishing a regressive model to explain the relationship between water discharge-sediment discharge, (iii) calculating the mean annual suspended sediment load and specific suspended sediment yield in the catchment area of the plain of Sidi Bel Abbès.
