Abstract: This note describes four methods that can be used to measure sedimentation rates in BLH forests and other wetland systems. These are: a modified sediment trap method, called a sediment disk; use of a feldspar clay marker horizon; use of 137cesiumfor dating cores; and a dendrogeomorphic method. The advantages and disadvantages of the methods are discussed and their application to wetland regulation and evaluation considered.
