Transport of suspended sediments within a river is spatially and temporally dynamic process, which requires high frequency monitoring to capture the in-channel processes of suspended sediments. These fine sediments effect the water quality as they act as hindrance in optical path. This obstruction in the water is called as Turbidity. However, Turbidity is highly influenced due to composition, size and concentration of suspended sediments. Moreover, turbulence and flow velocity influences suspended sediment properties. Therefore, this study deals with use of in-situ sensors to measure the suspended sediment properties to accurately quantify suspended sediment flux under riverine conditions.
