Abstract

This paper examines floodplain sedimentation following the 1999 flood of the century on the Tar River. Hurricane Floyd made landafall just 10 days after Hurricane Dennis in September 1999. The AA. used suspended sediment concentrations measured on the Tar River from 1958-1967 to suggest that the seasonal timing and sequencing of flood events in 1999 are the most probable explanations for the minimal geomorphic impact of this extreme flood
