Quantifying past changes in sediment transport to study the response of our environment to climate change

Grant


Scheme


  • Scientific Visits

Abstract


  • It is possible to examine how soil and water resources will cope with a changing climate by re-constructing how sediment transport has varied as a function of past climate change. In this project, an innovative technique to measure sediment surface area will be utilised, to establish a detailed chronology of how erosion has responded to past climate variations.
