Abstract

This article addresses spatial variability of contemporary floodplain sedimentation at the event scale. Measurements of overbank deposition were carried out using sediment traps on 11 floodplain sections along the rivers Waal and Meuse in the Netherlands during the high-magnitude flood of December 1993. By comparing the results of sediment trap measurements, the observed patterns of sediment accumulation were related to floodplain topography, inundation times and possible sediment-transporting mechanisms
