Title: Heavy mineral distribution in upland gravel-bed rivers
Authors: Hughes, Nicholas
Issue Date: 1992
Publisher: © Nicholas Hughes
Abstract: 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.
