|This paper was prepared to estimate soil erosion and sedimentation rate from different land use in the catchment areas using Fallout Radionuclides (FRNs). The FRNs widely used for soil erosion and sediment source tracing are 137Cs, 210Pb and 7Be. Therefore, these FRNs had been recognied as particularly indicates can be used to estimate from short-term to long-term the amount of soil erosion and sedimentation rates in the catchment during the period of the study. The study also found that both medium-term and long-term soil erosion rate is comparable to each other even though at different temporal scale. During the wet season, most sediment was stored in each catchment land use bore being transported out to the stream during the dry season. Whereas for short-term scale, large quantities of sediment are transported out of different land uses into the flow system. However, the results of this study will be discussed in more detail in this full paper. ? 2021. ASM Science Journal. All rights reserved.|
