In the Saru River, ages of floodplain surfaces were examined by tree ring analysis, and vertical and horizontal configurations of floodplain deposits were measured by field and aerial-photo surveying. The AA. constructed basic equations expressing continuity of age distribution in order to analyze river sedimentation in a time series according to the results of the 1992 flood. The time series approach presented here is useful for evaluating the speed of sediment waves and the cumulative impact of sedimentation in a river basin
