Abstract

This paper assesses the importance of deposition and storage of fine-grained (c.<150μm) sediment on the floodplains and beds of the main (non-tidal) channels of the River Tweed, Scotland, and two of its tributaries (River Teviot and Ettrick Water). Caesium-137 analysis of floodplain sediment cores has been used to estimate average rates of overbank sedimentation during the last 30 to 40 years. The residence time of the fine-grained sediment stored on the channel bed is probably less than one year, but that of sediment deposited on the floodplain is likely to be considerably longer
