Abstract

This contribution descibes how measurements of the fate of Chernobyl-derived [134]Cs have been used to investigate the role of downstream conveyance losses associated with channel and floodplain storage in the suspended sediment budget of the 6850 km[2] basin of the River Severn. The results relate to a 3-year period, 1986-1989, and indicate that conveyance losses associated with floodplain and channel storage respectively accounted for 23% and 2% of the total suspended sediment load passing through the main channel system
