Abstract

In 26 major world rivers, the estimation the early average contribution of the surface runoff to the river discharge, using the spectral analysis of Fourier applied to the time series of mean monthly discharges. The river-suspended sediment transports are used to calculate the concentration in surface runoff. On aglobal scale, these results allow assessing the surface runoff intensity over the entire world and to calculate its suspended load.
