Abstract

This paper presents a comparison of the pre- and post-late Holocene palaeo landsurfaces and paleochannels using data from the Nene, Soar and Severn valleys. From this comparison it is argued that during the mid to late Holocene floodplains and river channels underwent a metamorphosis. This metamorphosis, which is explained by the stable-bed aggrading-banks model (SBAB), is the key factor in the Holocene evolution of low-energy floodplain systems in the United Kingdom, upon which more subtle short-term fluctuations are superimposed
