Channel and floodplain response to recent abrupt climate change: the Tyne Basin, northern England

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines the timing, nature and magnitude of river response in upland, piedmont and lowland reaches of the Tyne Basin to high-frequency (20-30 year) changes in climate and flood regime since 1700 AD. Over this period fluvial activity has been characterized by alternating phases of river-bed incision and stability coinciding with non-random, decadal-scale fluctuations in flood frequency and hydroclimate that appear to be linked to changes in large-scale upper atmospheric circulation patterns. The results provide a valuable guide for forecasting probable drainage basin and channel response to future climate change
