Subaerial river bank erosion processes and their interaction with other bank erosion mechanisms on the River Arrow, Warwickshire, UK

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that subaerial processes may be underestimated as an erosive agent, and process dominance has a temporal, as well as spatial, aspect. Bank erosion on the River Arrow was monitored for 16 months (December 1996 to March 1998) using erosion pins. Variations in the rate and aerial extent of erosion are considered with reference to meteorological data. Throughout the first 15 months all erosion recorded was subaerial. While the role of subaerial process as preparatory is not contended, it is suggested that such processes can also be erosive
