Abstract

Mineral magnetic measurements indicate an increase in the supply of " subsoil " type sediments to Trentabank reservoir associated with a phase of gully development and slope instability beginning 15 to 20 years after afforestation of the Coombs Brook catchment. Changes in hydraulic stresses subsequent to road construction and forest development, in association with unstable Pleistocene deposits, may provide an explanation for these events
