 The load of sediment leaving a subbasin is calculated for suspended sediments (''​cSSl''​) and total sediments (''​cTSl''​). The load of sediment leaving a subbasin is calculated for suspended sediments (''​cSSl''​) and total sediments (''​cTSl''​).
  
-Net load of main river and outlet lake can be calculated for suspended sediments (SS) and total sediments (TS). The output variables ID are ''​nlSS''​ and ''​nlTS''​. Net load of main river and outlet lake is calculated from the inflow and outflow of substance to the main river and outlet lake in a subbasin as one system. The inflow is composed of upstream coming inflow and local inflow to the main river. The outflow is the outflow of the subbasin through the main and secondary branch. The net load is the load of outflow minus the load of inflow. ​+Net load of main river and outlet lake can be calculated for suspended sediments (SS) and total sediments (TS).

The inflow is composed of upstream coming inflow and local inflow to the main river. The outflow is the outflow of the subbasin through the main and secondary branch. The net load is the load of outflow minus the load of inflow. A bit of caution, do not misstake this output as the net load from a catchment, i.e. the load in the main river leaving the catchment.
  
 Included in the net load is the effect of production/​mineralisation of algae in the lake (for TS), point sources. Reduction of the net load is the effect of sedimentation,​ but also abstraction of water for irrigation or other purposes. In the case of zero outflow, or if the incoming load is larger than the load leaving the system, the net load becomes negative. Negative load could thus be caused by e.g. sedimentation,​ but also temporary holding up the sediment in the system. For subbasins holding a part of a lake, i.e. a lake basins, it is also possible that the water flow between the lake basins is (temporary) opposite of what is defined as downstream in GeoData. In this case the outflow of the subbasin is zero, and the net load of main river and outlet lake become negative. Included in the net load is the effect of production/​mineralisation of algae in the lake (for TS), point sources.
