Abstract

Chemical analyses of fine-grained post-glacial alluvium in the middle Tyne valley has revealed marked contrasts in the geochemical characteristics of late Holocene floodplain and channel sediments. Using multivariate statistical techniques, contemporary channel sediments, tills and pre-mining age alluvium from sites throughout the Tyne basin are compared and the results show that geochemical variability is diagnostic of sediment provenance from geologically distinct sub-catchments of the basin
