Estimation of the total sediment in a water sample by allowing the sediment to settle in a container, siphoning off the supernatant water, carefully transferring all the sediment from the container on to filter paper, then drying the sample and determining the mass of total sediment. [Based on 'gravimetric method' in International Glossary of Hydrology (WMO-No. 385). 2012 edition.]
