The article presents the results of research on the transport of sediment carried by the rivers of the northern slope of the Pomeranian Lake Land to the Baltic Sea in the years 1961-1980. The research includes rivers flowing into the open sea: Rega, Parseta, Wieprza, Slupia, Lupawa and Leba. The total surface of the basins of the rivers in question amounts to 13825.1 km2. The analysis was conducted on the basis of the data concerning the turbidity and flow of the rivers included in hydrological year-books. The size of the transport of the sediment for respective rivers has been counted and the transport of the wash load was analysed with respect to changing conditions of the streamflow and to physical-geographical features of the basin. The transport of the sediment carried to the sea was estimated (46000 tons) and the participation of the rivers of the northern slope of the Pomeranian Lake Land in the total transport of the river wash load from the catchment area of the Baltic Sea has been estimated (0.63%).
