Abstract

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
