- ... The sediment transported as bed load in streams and rivers is notoriously difficult to monitor cheaply and accurately. Passive acoustic methods are relatively simple, inexpensive, and provide spatial integration along with high temporal resolution. In 1963 work began on monitoring emissions from particle-on-particle collisions termed sediment-generated noise (SGN). Until the late 20th century, inv ...
