about sediment
Hello everyone

I use the Sediment scour model, so in the boundary, I can enter the number to set the sediment.

Then my problem is what's the unit about the sediment in SI?

Boundary sediment concentration is mass of sediment per volume of fluid, so in SI units would be kg/m^3, and in slugs/feet/seconds units, slugs/ft^3. The variable (ssbc or ssbct) is defined in the User Manual as well.
