Abstract

Rates of sediment supply by landsliding to an alluvial channel in a small catchment in central Switzerland were estimated over an 11-month study period. Fluvial sediment transport in the channel is independently monitored at the upstream and downstream ends of the study reach, yielding a unique opportunity to quantitatively compare the volume of sediment supplied to the channel with the volume in fluvial transport, and their net effect on the channel, over a period of 11 months. The AA. also compare changes in channel bed elevation over the past 11 years to examine whether the seasonal-scale behavior is consistent with decadal-scale aggradation in the study reach
