Sediment transfer and transformation of an alluvial valley floor : the River South Tyne, Northumbria, U.K.

Auteurs :
MACKLIN, M. G.
LEWIN, J.

Description :
Analysis of lateral and vertical channel change over a 115 year period, the extent of actively reworked gravels, and identification of metals in alluvial units, show five sedimentation zones separated by more stable reaches. Aggradation in the late nineteenth century was followed by a period of storage and local reworking, and then incision. The intricate response of the channel system to historic changes in sediment supply is not readily described by either a complex response model or a simple translatory wave.
