The use of short-lived radionuclides to quantify transitional bed material transport in a regulated river


The AA. investigate the use of the short-lived fallout radionuclide beryllium-7 as a tracer of medium and coarse sand, which transitions between transport in suspension and as bed load, and evaluate the effects of impoundment on seasonal and spatial variations in bed sedimentation. They measure Be 7 activities in approximately monthly samples from point bar and streambed sediments in one unregulated and one regulated stream. Results also show that the length scale of the downstream impact of dam management on sediment transport is short
