Description :
In this study an elemental approach is used to characterize the fluvial sedimentology of a 20 km reach of the Squamish River in which channel planform changes progressively downvalley from braided to meandering. A model of floodplain growth based on selective preservation of bar platform sands and preferential preservation of vertically accreted deposits in proposed. This mechanism of sediment replacement occurs independent of channel planform type.
