Abstract

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
