Abstract

The classifications presented in this paper confirm that changes in stream channel morphology and sedimentology at confluences are complex. These changes do not conform strongly to expected relationships based on hydrologic considerations alone. This study has shown that expected relationships exist only at relatively symmetrical junctions (Q2/Q1 > 0.7), where the simultaneous hydrological responses of the tributaries predominantly control channel morphology and sediment properties
