Plantation forestry impacts on sediment yields and downstream channel dynamics in the UK : a review

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper collates all the UK studies that have monitored changes in erosion and sediment yields at the forest establishment, mature forest and timber harvesting phases of the forest cycle. The likely downstream impacts of these changes in sediment yields on channel dynamics and management is discussed, introducing sediment wave theory with particular reference to the generation of bed load waves downstream of forested catchments. Published studies in which channel changes have resulted from the passage of sediment waves are collated and it is concluded that the translating wave model is best supported
