Abstract

Direct measurements of floodplain sedimentation using " plastic grass " sediment traps evidence both macro- and microscale spatial variations in deposition which can be related to the duration of inundation, the topography of the floodplain surface and the flow velocity of the inundating water. Rates of deposition have been estimated from conveyance losses and these have been compared with data obtained from the sediment traps
