Sediment yield in Africa


Several studies have compiled and analysedmeasured contemporary catchment sediment yield (SY, [t km−2 y−1]) values for various regions of the world. Although this has significantly contributed to our understanding of SY, Africa remains severely underrepresented in these studies. The objective of this article is therefore: (1) to review and compile available SY data for Africa; (2) to explore the spatial variability of these SY data; and (3) to examine which environmental factors explain this spatial variability. A literature reviewresulted in a dataset of SYmeasurements for 682 African catchments from84 publications and reports, representing more than 8340 catchment-years of observations...
