How Deposition of Mineral Sediments Establishes a Complex Template for Floodplain Ecosystem Development

By James Scott Bechtold


Bechtold will discuss floodplain ecosystem development. He will describe a study that looked into fine particle distribution as a constraint of organic matter dynamics in floodplain soils. He will present study results and implications.

Topics: sediment deposition, sediment transport, minerals, floodplains, lotic systems, alluvial soils, particle size, particle size distribution, temporal variation, spatial distribution, soil organic matter, mineralization, soil nutrient dynamics, chronosequences, fine-textured soils, water, biogeochemistry
