Abstract

A source to sink systemdescribes the natural link betweenmountains, plains and deltas, by analysing the (re)distribution ofmaterial at shallowcrustal depth and at the Earth's surface, exploring the links between coupled tectonic and surface processes. Sediment fluxes are the product of erosion and movement of material in and from sources (mountains), the transport and movement of sediments and solutes by river systems to the plains, and deposition and storage in sink zones. The ESF-EUROCORES TOPO-EUROPE SourceSink programme is a fully integrated research effort to significantly advance our predictive capabilities on the quantitative analyses of coupled active and past drainage systems bymeans of step-wise 4D reconstructions of sedimentsmass transfer, integrating geophysics, geology, geomorphology, state of the art high-resolution dating, and numerical and analoguemodelling. The area selected for this programme is the Danube River Basin-Black Sea source to sink system, aworld-class natural laboratory that is uniquely suited in the heart of Europe's topography, covering almost half of its surface, providing opportunities for excellent field sites to study in integration surface and subsurface data that cover the complete chain of source, carrier and sink. Quantifying andmodelling the complete systemin relation to the controlling parameters has resulted in significant understanding of forcing factors and linking temporal and spatial scales across multiple orogen and basin systems. This research has provided the opportunity to widen the geographical scope to other natural scenarios, where a number of mountain chains with similar geodynamic genesis separate sedimentary basins with comparable evolution.
