The purpose of this study was to examine the historical change in sedimentation rates in lakes that have been impacted by river regulation and agricultural activities in the Ishikari River floodplain. The AA. dated sediment cores using 137Cs dating and tephrochronology, and they estimated sediment sources from 137Cs concentrations in the topsoil of representative land covers (river banks, adjacent floodplains, cultivated lands, and reed swamps). They then focused on the changes in the lake sedimentation rate before and after the establishment of agricultural drainage network. Third, they compared the sedimentation rates from drainage networks across 8 different lakes, each of which is associated with different surrounding land-use conditions. Their approach included analyses of the catchment-derived 137Cs contribution and the 137Cs inventory. Discussion of the results
