Résumé
Bedload transport measurements with acoustic sensors were obtained during summer 2015 in the
Albula River in Switzerland. An impact plate measuring system was used with geophone and accelerometer
sensors. This system provides indirect estimations of bedload transport in water courses. In April 2015, 30
impact sensors were installed in a new permanent measuring station to monitor continuously bedload transport
in a mountain river with a large annual rate of sediment transport (around 90 000m3 yr􀀀1). Records of the first
year of measurement showed that (i) the signal response in terms of geophone and accelerometer impulses
is comparable for both types of sensors; (ii) there is a good correlation between discharge data and impulses
recorded by both types of sensors; (iii) the critical discharge at the start of bedload transport is around 5m3 s􀀀1;
(iv) a mean calibration factor for the geophone impulses can be estimated which is in a similar range as values
determined from other sites with field calibration measurements.
