Summary

According to the Koppen -Geiger climate classification, Hokkaido and central to southern Alaska are located at near southrn and northern borders of the subarctic region, respectively. River basins in Hokkaido and Alaska receive similar climatological and hydrological conditions of summer to autumn rainfall, winter snowfall and spring snowmelt. Here, hydrological characteristics of the Saromabetsu river basin (area, 277.0 km super(2)) and the Oikamanai river basin (area, 62.0 km super(2)) in Hokkaido are compared with those of the Tanana river basin (area, 6.6310 super(4) km super(2)) in Alaska. Hourly time series of river discharge, Q, and suspended sediment concentration, C, in runoff events offers the relationship between Q and C [...]
