Channel pattern changes along the lower Oconee River, Georgia, 1805/7 to 1949

Description :
The channel pattern changes may have been a response to changing river discharge and sediment transport characteristics brought about in part by land use changes in the basin. Higher peak and annual discharges in the late 1800 s and early 1900 s together with higher concentrations of suspended sediment because of intense soil erosion caused the river to become more sinuous between 1805/7 and 1910. Sinuosity decreased slightly in the period 1910-49 as discharge and suspended sediment concentrations dropped.
