Sediment storage and yield in an urbanized karst watershed

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents a preliminary assessment of fluvial sediment storage and yield in an urbanized, karst watershed. The AA. aim to identify and quantify the function of caves and sinkholes within the context of a sediment budget with 3 specific objectives : to investigate the function (source or sink) of sinkholes with respect to sediment transport; to demonstrate how sinkhole sedimentation rates can be used as an indicator of basin sediment yield from some sinkhole drainage basins; and to determine the relative contribution of a major cave system to a preliminary sediment budget for a karst watershed
