  • An approach proposed here, using a few observations of small transport rates to calibrate a transport formula, is likely to provide a superior combination of accuracy and effort and substantially reduces flow-scaling error. Small transport rates can

  • in disregarding exchanges of sediment between a channel and its floodplain, 2 factors influence wave behaviour : interactions between flow, wave topography and bed load transport; and relative particle sizes of input sediment and pre-existing bed material
  • A sediment transport equation for interrill overland flow on rough surfaces

  • A model for predicting the sediment transport capacity of turbulent interrill flow on rough surfaces is developed from 1295 flume experiments. The transport model is likely to apply to a wide range of ground surface morphologies. Using dimensional
  • analysis, a total-load transport equation is developed for open-channel flows, and this equation is shown to apply to interrill flows both with and without rainfall. Discussion of the results.

  • processes. The second is the study of turbulent flow structures. Finally, this review clearly focused on bed microtopography and related flow turbulence and sediment transport processes.

  • This review focuses on recent Canadian contributions to hillslope geomorphology, and emphasizes geotechnical studies of mass movement phenomena in the Canadian Cordillera, including debris flows, rock avalanches, talus slopes, rock creep, and slow
  • earthflow. A brief discussion is included of quick-clay flow slides in eastern Canada, and gelifluction phenomena in arctic and alpine areas. Comparisons are made with similar geotechnical work conducted in the Pacific-rim steeplands.
  • Uplands of the Canadian Arctic Islands supported Late Wisconsinan ice caps that developed two landscape zones reflecting basal thermal conditions regulated by long-sustained ice flow patterns. Central cold-based zones protected older glacial
