Effects of wet meadow riparian vegetation on streambank erosion. 1. Remote sensing measurements of streambank migration and erodibility

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The AA. quantified how rates of stream channel migration in a montane meadow vary as a function of the riparian vegetation community. The South Fork of the Kern River at Monache Meadow, located in California's southern Sierra Nevada range, supports 2 distinct types of vegetation : a dry and a wet meadow community. The AA. measured rates of lateral stream migration for dry versus wet meadow reaches from aerial photographs spanning a 40-year period (1955-1995). They used a linear model of meander migration to calculate coefficients that characterize bank migration potential, or bank erodibility, independent of channel curvature
