Abstract

This paper describes a detailed contemporary sediment budget from a small peat-covered upland catchment in Upper Teesdale, northern England. The sediment budget was constructed by measuring : sediment transfers on slopes, sediment flux on the floodplain and through the main stream channel and sediment yield at the catchment outlet. Measurements were taken over a four-year monitoring period between July 1997 and October 2001 when interannual variations in runoff were relatively small. Three sites were selected to represent the major erosion subsystems within the catchment : an area of bare peat flats, a pair of peat gullies, and a 300 m channel reach
