Suspended sediment discharge

Year: 2009
From collection: Vital Water Graphics 2
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz (Le Monde diplomatique), 2008
Description:
Asia exhibits the largest runoff volumes and, therefore, the highest levels of sediment discharge. Due to their high precipitation, the Oceanic Islands have disproportionately high-suspended sediment loads (Gleick, 1993).
