John Pitlick, Jeff Marr and Jim Pizzuto Width adjustment in experimental gravel-bed channels in response to overbank flows Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface 118

Version of Record online: 2 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrf.20059

Key Points

  • Channels in sand/gravel sediment equilibrate to floods by increases in width
  • Morphologic equilibrium occurs at transport stages of about 1.2
  • Results imply that natural channels will widen until floods are eliminated
