This paper by Donovan et al seeks to quantify (1) rates of sediment remobilization from Baltimore County
floodplains by channel migration and bank erosion, (2) proportions of streambank sediment derived from legacy
deposits, and (3) potential contribution of net streambank erosion and legacy sediments to downstream
sediment yield within the Mid-Atlantic Piedmont. The results of this study suggest that streambank sediments are a relatively large source of sediment from Piedmont tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay.
