Abstract

The AA. identify sediment sources and sinks in the Root river watershed, Southeastern Minnesota. They document a shift in hydrologic regime and that sediment fluxes are sensitive to both magnitude and sequence of flood events. Geomorphic analysis indicates that many river reaches have accessible near-channel sources that contribute the dominant proportion of the washload flux in subwatersheds. Lastly, geochemical tracer analyses of floodplains and hillslope soils indicate that historic erosion has been variable across the landscape and the majority of suspended sediment in the river today is sourced from floodplains and terraces
