Version of Record online: 10 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrf.20067

Key Points

  • We observe active fluvial transport in steep streams up to 37% slope.
  • Sediment transport laws for low-gradient rivers need adjustment in steep streams
  • Channel slope, patches, and grain hiding strongly influence incipient motion
