Investigating source areas of eroded sediments transported in concentrated overland flow using rare earth element tracers

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Rare earth element oxides (REOs) have excellent potential for use as tracers in erosion studies. Using laboratory and field experiments the AA. aimed to develop and test a simple application method for spreading REOs and to use REOs to determine the source of sediment to concentrated flow paths. Two field experiments were conducted at the Allerton Trust Farm at loddington, Leicestershire on soils with heavy clays and tracks left by farm machinery (tramlines) acting as concentrated flow paths : one looking at whether sediment is entrained from different points along the length of the tramline and one looking at the area over which sediment is entrained from either side of a tramline
