Although sediment concentrations measured in two contrasting streams in East Yorkshire fluctuate in response to similar hydrological factors, the effectiveness of these factors reflects the environmental characteristics of the drainage basins. Consequently, regression relationships used to predict sediment concentrations in individual streams are not directly applicable outside the region in which they were developed. The sensitivity of sediment concentration variations to environmental conditions makes long term estimates of denudation of limited value.
