A physically-based modelling system for water, sediment and contaminant transport at the river basin scale, called SHETRAN-UK, is presented which has particular relevance to environmental change impact studies. Based on the SHE hydrological modelling system, components have been developed for soil erosion and sediment yield, and for dissolved and particulate contaminant transport. Particular emphasis is placed on sediment and contaminant interactions and sediment transport by size fraction (including cohesive sediments) to account for the preferential sorption of contaminants by the finer sediment sizes. -from Authors
