Geochemical and lithologic response of an upland watershed over the past 800 years to landscape changes in Southern Burgundy, France.

  author={T. Misner},
This study is an integrated analysis of the interaction between human and environmental systems within a small watershed in Southern Burgundy, France. The main objectives for this study were to understand the key environmental drivers for sediment erosion and nutrient availability in the watershed, and how those drivers were recorded in the pond sediment over the past 800 years. Future climate variability, interacting with land-use changes (e.g. intensification of agriculture) may have… Expand


Land-use changes and environmental dynamics in the upper Rhone valley since Neolithic times inferred from sediments in Lac Moras
Lac Moras is a small lake located on a low-elevation plateau in the upper Rhône Valley (304 m a.s.l.). The upper 5 m of accumulated sediment in the lake span 7500 years and offer a detailed record ofExpand
Lake ecosystem responses to catchment disturbance and airborne pollution: an 800-year perspective in southern Sweden
Sediment sequences spanning the last 800 years from two small lakes in the south Swedish uplands were explored for assessment of effects of changing human population, local land-use practices andExpand
Lake sediments used to quantify the erosional response to land use change in southern Sweden
Reconstructions of P flux in present and AD 1682 catchments suggests that in contrast to the highly subsidised present system, the earlier system ran at a net loss with losses of P at a rate of 1.5 kg ha-1 yr-'. Expand
Lake sediment records of erosional processes
Accumulations of sediment at the beds of lakes, estuaries and reservoirs provide partial records of materials transported from the surrounding water catchment areas. Physical, chemical, biologicalExpand
9000 years of geochemical evolution of lithogenic major and trace elements in the sediment of an alpine lake – the role of climate, vegetation, and land-use history
A 9000cal. year record of geochemistry was analysed in a sediment core obtained from a Swiss alpine hard-water lake (1937 ma.s.l.) that is located at the present-day tree-line. GeochemicalExpand
Recent Environmental Change and Human Impact on Svalbard: The Lake-Sediment Geochemical Record
As part of a broader investigation into recent environmental change on Svalbard, the inorganic geochemical record of six lake-sediment cores was analysed. The major temporal trends in sedimentExpand
Sedimented organic nitrogen isotopes in freshwater wetlands record long-term changes in watershed nitrogen source and land use.
The results illustrate the importance of hydrologic connectivity in delivering waste-derived N in a watershed characterized by relatively low human population density and demonstrate how this approach can expand the temporal horizon over which the authors can assess human impacts to watershed N dynamics.

Abstract Alluvial deposits of the Loire/Arroux trunk/tributary system record distinct, synchronous episodes of regional fluvial adjustment. Changes in facies and depositional style through time canExpand
A late Holocene record of land-use history, soil erosion, lake trophy and lake-level fluctuations at Bjäresjösjön (south Sweden)
Land-use history, soil erosion, lake trophy and lake-level fluctuations during the last 3000 years were reconstructed through a multidisciplinary palaeolimnological study (pollen, plant macrofossils,Expand
7000 years of vegetation history and land-use changes in the Morvan Mountains (France): A regional synthesis
This paper aims to reconstruct the vegetation history of a middle mountain – the Morvan (Burgundy, France) – since the Neolithic (i.e. 7000 years). The results of palynological and non-pollenExpand
