Heavy mineral distribution in upland gravel-bed rivers
thesisposted on 2018-01-05, 09:23 authored by Nicholas Hughes
The characteristics of gravel-bed river deposits vary according to the complex relationships between hydrological and sedimentological regimes that occur over a range of spatial and temporal scales. This thesis concerns the composition and distribution of fine-grained sediment in British upland rivers; the size fractions which are perhaps the most susceptible, as regards both quantity and quality, to human activity and yet which can yield important information regarding upstream geological characteristics.
