Description :
Dendrochronological techniques are used to develop a history of flood occurrence and relative stage for the middle section of the Morice River based on flood scars, bank under cutting dates and tree establishment dates on fluvial features. During the Neoglacial the Morice River was more active than in recent times, and its channels occupied twice the present area.
