Contemporary channel changes in the Eygues basin, southern French Prealps : the relationship of subbasin variability to watershed characteristics

published at : Drainage basin dynamics and morphology


The southern French Prealps are sub-Mediterranean mountains in which forest cover has increased since the end of the 19th century. Forest development, linked with agricultural decline and planned reafforestation, has induced a decrease of bedload supply from hillslopes. In response to this evolution, several channel changes are observed in mountain streams. The most active tributaries of the Eygues River are characterized mainly by high drainage density and poor vegetation cover linked to agricultural land use
