Anastomosis and the continuum of channel pattern

Auteurs :
KNIGHTON, A.D.

Description :
Anastomosing rivers are characterized by multiple channels separated by islands excised from the floodplain. Their status relative to the continuum concept of channel pattern is assessed with channel pattern defined in terms of three variables: flow strentgh, bank erodibility and relative sediment supply. Anastomosis may in certain cases represent a transitional form of channel pattern but there is no denying the longevity of some anastomosing systems.
