Abstract

Changing patterns of connectivity have been studied in the Ingbirchworth Catchment (Yorkshire, UK), using a multiple methodology approach combining the analysis of reservoir-sediment records with knowledge of recent land-use history, high resolution rainfall records, catchment characteristics and management aspects. The results demonstrate that typical calculations of catchment-area yields are not sufficient as sediment-contributing areas vary as a consequence of changing conditions. The study provides insights into the complex interactions influencing connectivity, such as the relation between catchment changes and climatic inputs, and the subsequent effect on catchment conditions and transfer networks
