Abstract

The AA. use data from 19 sites to characterize patterns and rates of coarse sediment transport for a range of channel types and sizes, including step-pool, plane-bed, pool-riffle, and near-braided channels. This effort builds upon previous work where the AA. applied a piecewise regression model to relate flow to rates of bedload transport and to define phases of transport in coarse-grained channels. While there were many similarities in observed patterns of bedload transport at the 19 studied sites, each had its own bedload signal in that the rate and size of materials transported largely reflected the nature of flow and sediment particular to that system
