Abstract
Historical information was used to study river degradation in a case study in NE Spain. The accumulation of good topographical information since the 1940s for the Gállego river (a tributary of the Ebro river, which drains about 4,000 km2 of the southern slopes of the Pyrenees) enables a comparison of longitudinal bed profiles. Historical research has also revealed the volume of gravel mined, which amounts to ≈ 1 million m3 compared to the volume of alluvium lost due to incision in the same pe...
