This investigation was carried out in two phases from October 1977 to March 1982. The details on field, laboratory, and computer simulation have been reported in four comprehensive annual reports. The production and transport of sediments from, through, and out of this basin are complex. They are affected by natural as well as man-induced factors and conditions. This investigation provided a unique opportunity to monitor and evaluate sediments in an integrated one-million acre agricultural and watershed systems. The perspective gained is different from investigations involving smaller subwatersheds and field plots.
