Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland

Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland – Plate 7.4

The solid matter transported by rivers can be divided into three different types: bed load, suspended load and floating matter. The fine particles suspended in the water by the current and by water turbulence make up the suspended load. The map is based on data from a selection of stations from within various measurement networks where regular results are available for the period 1979 to 1993.
