depth-integration sediment sampling

A methodology that obtains a representative discharge- weighted water–sediment sample over stream verticals, except in an unmeasured zone near the streambed, by continuously cumulatively collecting a portion of the water–sediment mixture as the sampler traverses the vertical at an approximately constant transit rate.
