The graphical plots of turbidity and suspended-sediment concentrations and streamflow and suspended-sediment concentration in log10 space indicates improved correlation and suggests that log 10 transformation may improve the regression model. Measurements such as turbidity and discharge can be used to compute water-quality constituents such as suspended-sediment concentration.
