Average seasonal suspended sediment yields to U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Gage, Station No. 05507500, OWDC No. 07367, on the Salt River near Monroe City, Missouri were calculated by deriving linear regressions between suspended sediment concentration and streamflows, computing sediment load, and using mean weighted streamflows to compute average seasonal suspended sediment loads. The average calculated seasonal suspended sediment loads are spring, 881,000 tons; summer, 117,00 tons; fall, 82,000 tons; and winter, 135,000 tons. Seasonal displays are further subdivided into the major grain size fractions clay, silt, and sand.
