Abstract
    The oxygen isotopic composition of the clay fraction in Recent argillaceous sediments in western Europe shows regional differences, the d18SMOW values varying between + 15.8 and + 21.7‰. This phenomenon is used for sediment-transport studies. In the Rhine-Meuse estuary a landward transport of marine sediments is observed. The clay fraction of the sediments in the Wadden Sea is only for a minor part derived from the rivers Rhine and Meuse.
