The history of sediment and its movement in the Atlantic drainage demonstrate some of the difficulties of modeling sediment on a river-basin scale. Soil erosion was accelerated by a factor of at least 10 when European settlers cleared forests and planted crops. Although increasing soil-conservation practice and decreasing crop farming have since reduced the rates of erosion, large quantities of eroded material are still stored on hillslopes and in stream valleys where they continue to augment… Expand
