Variability in sediment supply, transfer and deposition in an upland torrent system : Iron Crag, northern England

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this study is to examine spatial variations and process controls on sediment transfer in an upland torrent system (hillslopes, channel and fan). The study site is Iron Crag, a small torrent system situated in the northern Lake District. Partcle size analysis of hillslope sediments trapped during transport suggests sediment calibre is controlled primarily by sediment source. Freeze-thaw and rainfall processes impart a weak but recognizable size sorting signature on the trapped sediments. The importance of the channel-fan coupling is clearly demonstrated in that more than 90 per cent of fan sedimentation is derived from channel sediment sources
