Factors controlling sediment yield from small intensively cultivated catchments in a temperate humid climate

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Data on sediment yield from 26 small cultivated catchments (10-10 000 ha) in central Belgium were collected based on sedimentation rates in small flood retention ponds. Various catchment properties were analysed in order to understand the large variation in observed sediment yield. A multiple regression model including 3 morphological catchment properties is a valuable tool to predict total sediment yield from catchments in central Belgium. This model has an efficiency of 0.81. The importance of spatially distributed parameters within catchments are some of the major reasons that the proposed model does not explain all observed variation in sediment yield
