This paper reviews the basis for using fallout Cs 137 measurements of floodplain sediment samples to study rates and patterns of overbank sediment deposition on floodplains. The processes involved in the incorporation of Cs 137 into overbank floodplain sediments will be discussed, and the primary factors influencing the distribution of Cs 137 in the sediment will be examined. The results obtained from a case study of a floodplain reach of the River Stour, Dorset, UK, will be used to illustrate the procedures and to demonstrate their utility and potential in floodplain sedimentation investigations
