Experiments were conducted with rainfall intensities of 45.0 and 140.0 mm/hr at slopes of 2, 9 and 20 per cent to separate the dominant effect of rainfall intensity on sediment transport capacity. The effect of sediment size on rainintensity contribution to unit sediment transport capacity was also investigated. Regression models for rain-intensity contribution to unit sediment transport capacity Y were developed including median particle diameter X of sediment as an additional independent variable. The constants of power relationships of the form Y ≡ aXb were found to vary with the median particle diameter of the soil.
