The deposition of coarse particles increases with discharge growing much more intensively, because the fall velocity of the particles is also much higher.
x] falling within an environment of smaller cloud particles of radius Ry and fall velocity u([R.
which is the common equation used by Rutledge and Hobbs (1983) and other authors, when a Marshall--Palmer law and power-law approximation to fall velocity is assumed.
When the radius and fall velocity of the collected drops are negligible, only the first terms appear as well as the term with the coefficient 0.
Sediment deposition is then proportional to the fall velocity of the particles and the sediment concentration between the grasses, formed by the concentration at the flow bottom over the grass layer.
