Abstract

Evidence is presented here of recent and extensive infilling of the incised channel network of the Jugong Creek catchment, SE Australia. The colonisation of the channel network is widespread and is resulting in deposition of fine-grained sediment in channel beds. There are indications that in-stream wetlands will continue to expand and trap sediment. The volume of fine-grained sediment increases with wetland age. The in-stream wetlands may provide a significant capacity to buffer erosion from gullied catchments of considerable size as an adjunct to current riparian management options
