Abstract


In May 1872 a landslide occurred in the western Czech Republic, blocking the Mladoticky stream valley and creating Lake Mladotice. The 1952 and 1975 air photos document that collective farming had a great impact when balks and field terraces were removed and fields were made much larger. Because of this change in land use we expected higher soil erosion and a related increase in the sedimentation rate. Our analysis of the sedimentary record aims to identify the factors controlling sediment input, i.e. soil erosion, which is dependent on rainfall–runoff processes and land use in the drainage basin. The sediment stratigraphy, physics, chemistry, micropalaeontology, isotope content and thin sections yield a detailed temporal resolution of the sedimentation chronology. Surprisingly, the sedimentation rates only indicate a small increase from 2.2 cm/year (1954–1963) to 2.7 cm/year (1963–1978) to 2.5 (1978–1986) and 2.4 cm/year (1986–2003).
