Sources and ages of fine-grained sediment to streams using fallout radionuclides in the Midwestern United States.

Abstract

Fallout radionuclides, 7Be and 210Pbex, sampled in bed sediment for 99 watersheds in the Midwestern region of the United States and in 15 samples of suspended sediment from 3 of these watersheds were used to partition upland from channel sources and to estimate the age or the time since the surface-derived portion of sediment was on the land surface (0-∼1… (More)
