Summary/Abstract: The specific carrying of silt, in the Jerma river basin to the profile Trnski Odorovci, is 82,3 t/km/year. In some years it is extremely high (in 1969, 267504 t, or 480.0 t/km/year of silt has been carried out of basin) while in the other it is very low (in 1979 only 10.4 t/km/year). On the other hand, the seasonal differences in silt concen-tration and amount of erosion are very significant. So, complexed influence of all physico – geographical factors has great influence on seasonal rhythm of carrying and silt concentration. The most erodible are winter and spring months.
