Toward generalizable sediment fingerprinting with tracers that are conservative and nonconservative over sediment routing timescalesJournal of Soils and Sediments (2014)
We show that measurements of conservative and nonconservative tracers (e.g., long- and short-lived radionuclides) can provide spatially integrated, yet temporally discrete, insights to constrain sediment sources and channel–floodplain exchange at the river network-scale. Fingerprinting that utilizes nonconservative tracers requires that the nonconservative behavior is predictable and verifiable.
