Waterhole form and process in the anastomosing channel system of Cooper Creek, Australia

Auteurs :

Description :
One of the most distinctive features of Cooper Creek's anastomosing channel system is the preponderance of waterholes, enlarged segments of channel ranging in length from 100 m to over 20 km. They play a significant hydrological and geomorphological role in the Cooper Creek anastomosing system. They provide long-term water storage in an arid environment, and their fixed position helps to maintain the stability of the multi-channel pattern.
