(hydrology)
The amount of sediment moved by a stream in a given time, measured by dry weight or by volume. Also known as sediment-transport rate.

This will see the adoption of a range of technologies to promote cleaner production systems for intensive agriculture that reduce carbon emissions and nutrient sediment discharge.
The Yellow River is known for its large sediment discharge and high sediment concentration, and 98% of its sediment originates from the area above the Shaanxian (Tongguan) station on the main channel of the Yellow River.

In this study, we focused on the amount of suspended sediment discharge (SSD) and mapped landslides in three major river catchments in central and southwestern Taiwan, including the Zhuoshui River, the Zengwen River, and the Gaoping River, to assess the impact of an extreme rainfall event on the occurrence of rainfall-driven landslides and sediment discharges transported in rivers (Figure 1(b)).
The data used in this study were collected from four gauging stations (Baihe, Huangjiagang, Huangzhuang, and Xiantao) in the Han River basin, which covered the original data of long-term records of runoff and sediment discharge for nearly 60 years (1955-2013).
Moreover, several studies [11, 12, 13] noticed that both water and sediment discharge of several world' rivers have shown progressive decrease during the last 50 years, which is more primarily due to reservoir construction, water abstraction, and soil conservation.
The deviation of the inner-annual distributions of flow and sediment discharge can cause different channel forms in the LYR.
The sediment deposition and retention in the inundated valley increase quickly with rising water discharges, since in this case the sediment discharge also increases, and the decrease of sediment concentration because of their deposition is then compensated in the main channel.
The recent sediment cover on the Lisbon shelf is largely determined by sediment discharge from the Tagus (Tejo) River, a major river draining an area of more than 80 000 [km.sup.2] and with a mean annual discharge of 16 x [10.sup.9] [m.sup.3] [y.sup.-1].
The maximum sediment discharge for BT usually occurred ~12 min after the start of the experiment, during which 16 mm of rain was applied to the plots, whereas the sediment discharge in the ST and GT plots peaked 18-20min later (Fig.
Internal and external experts pronounced the water and sediment discharge as nontoxic and biodegradable.
Hydrological data from Voina station reveals important fluctuations of liquid debit and sediment discharge. Hereby, in the second part of the spring, snow melting in alpine sector and rainfalls determine high values of drainage.
