Abstract

This paper investigates temporal variations in fluxes of peat and other sediment in the catchment of March Haigh Reservoir, West Yorkshire. Long-term estimates of sediment yield were derived from a study of reservoir sediments. Magnetic properties were used to correlate 10 cores to a master profile dated using Pb 210 and Cs 137. A C 14 date suggests that most of the organic component of the sediment is allochtonous and derived from peat eroded from the catchment. Organic sediment yields suggest low catchment erosion rates between 1838 and 1963. Blanket peat erosion increased significantly after 1963, and peaked between 1976 and 1984. Sedimentation within the reservoir is spatially variable
