DUCK R. W. ;


In 1982 an unmetalled road was constructed in a Scottish Highland glen, Glen Ogle, crossing several left bank tributaries of the Ogle Burn, one of the main influents to Loch Earn. As a result, at least 1824 tonnes of sediment were deposited over an area of 4,6 ha of loch bed in less than 2 months. Thus the study provides a quantified illustration of the potential impact of a specific human activity on the acceleration of erosion and deposition rates.
