Title:
The impact of a major Quaternary river capture on the alluvial sediments of a beheaded river system, the Rio Alias SE Spain
Authors:
Maher, Elizabeth; Harvey, Adrian M; France, Derek
Abstract:
This article discusses a major river capture event within the Sorbas Basin (c.70 ka) which created a situation whereby the Rio Alias abruptly lost c. 70% of its drainage area and this led to a significant modification of the fluvial system in both upstream and downstream zones on the capturing stream, and downstream on the beheaded system.
