Complex behaviour of natural sediment-carrying streamflows and the geomorphological implications

Auteur :
JIONGXIN XU,

Description :
Nearly 90 alluvial rivers are involved in this study, located in different natural zones in China, and include the Yellow River, Yangtze River, Haihe River, Huaihe River, Liaohe River, Songhuajiang River and Pearl River and their tributaries. When suspended concentration is low, a meandering pattern is dominant. The increase in suspended concentration leads to a transformation from a meandering to a braided pattern. But when the suspended concentration increases further and enters the range of hyperconcentrated flows, the meandering pattern appears.
