B.5 RANGE OF DATA FOR VALIDATION
To validate the Kodoatie et al. power relationship and modified Laursen equation, data from
Group 2 were used. The computed Cppm from the proposed methods were compared to the
measured Cppm. Note that because sets of data for gravel-bed rivers were relatively small,
the laboratory data of Meyer-Peter and Mller (1948) containing 139 sets of data were used
