Description :
Special focus was on : the detection of different zones with negative, positive or balanced subrecent (following the Little Ice Age advance) sediment budget within the braided sandur system; the identification of sediment sources upstream of Sandane and from the slope systems to both sides of the braided sandur system; and the analysis of the subrecent sediment budget of the entire Sandane system. A combination of methods was applied in the analysis. The subrecent sediment budget of Sandane appears to be slightly negative. Present-day coupling of slope and fluvial systems is limited and only a rather small amount of sediment is directly transported from the slopes into the braided sandur. In sum, fluvial sediment transport following the Little Ice Age period appears to be supply-limited.
