Abstract

The AA. use volumetric estimates of sediment trapped in a stock pond of known age at the outlet of the study catchment, the Haypress basin in the Marin Headlands of northern California, to calculate a basin-wide erosion rate valid over the lifespan of the pond. The AA. compare this basin-averaged, short-term rate with an array of point-specific measurements of short-lived fallout nuclides from soil pits. They conclude by comparing the short-term rates with the long-term, basin-wide erosion rates determined using cosmogenic nuclide (Be 10 and Al 26) concentrations
