Abstract

This paper reports a field monitoring and computer-modelling investigation that has been carried out in northern Mississippi to quantify the separate and combined hydrologic and mechanical effects of 3 different vegetation covers (mature trees, clump grasses, and bare/cropped turf grass) on streambank stability. The results demonstrate the importance of hydrologic processes in controlling streambank stability, and highlight the need to select riparian vegetation based on hydrologic as well as mechanical and ecological criteria
