Discrimination of channel patterns for gravel- and sand-bed rivers

Auteur :
XU, J.

Description :
Based on data from around 200 alluvial rivers in several countries, a systematic comparison of flow shear stress and stream power has been made between sand- and gravel-bed rivers. The formation of channel pattern can be regarded as the outcome of sediment transport and channel bank constraints in an alluvial river. To overcome the difficulty of quantifying channel bank constraints, channel width/depth ratio and a dimensionless channel width index are used to reflect it indirectly.
