Braided rivers, with their continuously changing network of channels, are highly dynamic systems. Four mechanisms of channel change and evolution are considered the classic mechanisms of braided river formation: development of central bars, conversion of single transverse bars to midchannel braid bars, formation of chutes, and dissection of multiple-braid bars. There have been few studies, though, on how each of these braiding mechanisms contributes to changes in sediment storage and to the dynamics of a river. In one of the first field studies on the topic, Wheaton et al. analyzed repeat topographic surveys conducted over a 5-year period of the River Feshie, an active, braided, gravel bed river in the United Kingdom.
