Quantifying sediment sources in lowlying sugarcane land: a sediment budget approach

Visser, Fleur; Roth, Christian; Wasson, Robert J; Prosser, Ian


The flood plain of the Herbert River basin is predominantly used for sugarcane cultivation. Although flood plains are generally considered depositional areas, high sediment concentrations have been observed in the water draining from cane land. Erosion control measures have reduced erosion from cane fields, but other landscape elements (e.g. drains) could still be important sediment sources. For this study the total sediment output from a cane area was gauged and the contribution of a range of...[Show more]
