Abstract

This paper demonstrates how fractional sediment storage activity in a gravel-bed river can be quantified using a within-reach sediment budget and reservoir theory. Deployment of magnetic tracer particles allows accurate characterisation of sediment fluxes in gravel-bed rivers and provide the opportunity to quantify storage activity using reservoir theory. The results suggest that transit time is difficult to determine from tracer studies in gravel-bed rivers. Consequently, a refinement of transit time, the response time, is introduced
