Phairot Chatanantavet, Michael P. Lamb and Jeffrey A. Nittrouer Backwater controls of avulsion location on deltas Geophysical Research Letters 39

Article first published online: 12 JAN 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL050197

Key Points

  • The upstream location of river avulsions set by backwater hydrodynamics
  • Avulsion is more likely upstream due to rapid channel-fill timescales there
  • Avulsion is less likely near river mouths due to drawdown and river-bed scour
