Mediated equilibrium : the influence of riparian vegetation and wood on the long-term evolution and behaviour of a near-pristine river

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Analysis of the contemporary geomorphology, vegetation and in-channel wood within the relatively pristine Thurra River in southeastern Australia provides insight into river behaviour prior to European disturbance. Sedimentological evidence is used to place contemporary channel dynamics within a 16 ka evolutionary framework. The morphology and evolution of the Thurra River are appraised in terms of mediated equilibrium condition, in which channel capacity, hydraulics, bedload transport rates, bank erosion rates, and in-channel deposition are substantially influenced by vegetation and wood within the channel and on the floodplain
