Abstract

The paper outlines a framework for examining fluvial sediment fluxes in cold environments including : sources of sediment in glacial and periglacial environments; techniques for measuring fluvial sediment transfers; and methods for measuring contemporary deposition in lacustrine sediment sinks. Within this framework, the AA. stress that it is particularly important to provide consistency in methods for monitoring sediment flux and to adopt appropriate sampling frequencies
