Late Holocene channel and floodplain development in a wandering gravel-bed river : the River South Tyne at Lambley, northern England

Description :
Geomorphological analyses of the morphology, lithostratigraphy and chronology of Holocene alluvial fills in a 2.75 km long piedmont reach of the wandering gravel-bed River South Tyne, in Northumberland, have identified spatial and temporal patterns of late Holocene channel and floodplain development and elucidated the relationship between reach- and subreach-scale channel transformation and terrace formation. Five terraced alluvial fills have been dated. The preservation of correlated terrace levels indicates that major phases of floodplain construction and entrenchment have been superimposed over locally complex patterns of sediment transfer.
