Magnitude and variation in the contribution of bank erosion to the suspended sediment load of the River Severn, UK

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper investigates the relatonship between bank erosion and suspended sediment dynamics at the annual, monthly and event timescales within the upper River Severn. Manual erosion pins and photo-electronic erosion pins were used to estimate bank erosion, and turbidity meters were used to determine suspended sediment transport. This research highlighted that for an upland catchment, bank erosion was an important supply of suspended sediment, and that for some flood events bank erosion can supply more sediment than is transported
