Lai, F. S., M. J. Lee, S. Mohd Rizal, 1995. Changes in sediment discharge resulting from commercial logging in the Sungai Lawing basin, Selangor, Malaysia. IAHS Publication No. 226, 55-62, English. Rainfall, stream flow, and water quality data were collected before logging (1988-1989) and after logging (1992+). The 1993 suspended sediment load was 1129 t/km2 compared to 54 t/km2 in 1988-89. The logging system used is described.
