Lateglacial river sediment budgets in the Maas valley, the Netherlands

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper aims to explain the complex nature and causes of fluvial responses to climate change by calculating amounts of eroded, reworked and deposited sediment by different river types during Lateglacial warm and cold periods. 3 Weichselian Lateglacial (13-10 ka) terraces have been distinguished in the Maas valley. Using a geographical information system, it will be shown that the fluvial development of the Maas can be explained not only by climate-related external factors such as sediment-discharge ratios and discharge characteristics, but possibly also by intrinsic factors such as floodplain dimensions and the channel morphology of previous periods
