Here the AA. present and explore the evidence for changes in sediment regime during the late Holocene (last 3000 years) for a terraced fluvial system. They use the evolution of river terraces in the lower Ribble valley (northwest England) which have been mapped and surveyed, and for which extensive geochronological control (radiocarbon measurements) is available for multiple palaeochannels at several locations. Three geochronology and geomorphological sequence models are presented, one for each study locations. Discussion and implications about geomorphological evolution and sediment flux
