Abstract

The utility of mica flakes for discriminating between Piedmont and non-Piedmont sources of sediment in the lower Coastal Plain reaches of the Neuse River was established on the basis of an examination of the U.S. National Soils Database and of 26 soil surveys of the North Carolina Coastal Plain. Results demonstrate a dominantly Coastal Plain source and underscore the importance of storage and discontinuous transport in fluvial sediment systems. The upper- and lower-basin sediment dynamics are not only non-linearly related, but may be virtually decoupled
