Abstract

The classic channel slope-discharge relationship proposed by Leopold and Wolman (1957) for channel pattern discrimination has been tested by a large database including 4 types of rivers : gravel-bed meandering rivers, gravel-bed braided rivers, sand-bed meandering rivers and sand-bed braided rivers. The result shows that this relationship cannot discriminate channel patterns well when both gravel- and sand-bed rivers are considered. The channel width-bankfull discharge relationship suggested by XU (1996) for discrimination of channel patterns of sand-bed rivers in China, is also tested in this study by the same database. Discussion of the results
