Abstract

By using stratigraphic and documentary evidence, in conjunction with aerial phtographs, sediment budgets for the post-settlement period have been constructed to define the fluxes and stores of sediment for each of the major geomorphic components of the catchment of Jerrabomberra Creek near Canberra. Using these budgets, and some plausible assumptions, it has been possible to approximate the history of both the sediment delivery ratio and sediment yield for this catchment. Sediment yield increased rapidly to a peak after European settlement, and has returned to a level between the peak and the pre-European value
