We present a new model for hyperpycnal plumes or turbidity currents. This model takes into account deposition and erosion effects as well as solid transport of particles at the bed load due to the current. The model is obtained as depth-average equations under the shallow water hypothesis describing the balance of fluid mass, sediment mass and mean flow. The final system is hyperbolic and numerical simulations are carried out using finite volume schemes and path-conservative schemes.
