Fig. 12

Grain-size trend vectors. The actual sediment-transport directions during normal conditions are shown as the mean direction of tracer results (see Fig. 4a). Circles indicate the sampling points. a Grain-size trend vectors calculated by P-GSTA. b Grain-size trend vectors calculated by the previous GSTA method (Asselman 1999). Some of sampling points lack the trend vector because the GSTA method does not recognize the grain-size trend when no surrounded locations satisfy the conditions FB− or CB+
