Abstract

In the Piedmond of Maryland, USA, channel processes appear to be both episodic in time and to occur spatially in steps. Sand in patches and gravel (50 mm) move roughly 5 to 7 times per year, and boulders (300-600 mm) move perhaps once every year or two. A headcut in saprolite was observed to retreat over a distance of 18.2 m in 3 years
