Abstract

This research investigates the long-term (54-year) average state of a wandering river and then explores the detailed channel changes. The study has 2 objectives : (1) to examine the temporal dynamics of a wandering river using a conceptual model and (2) to investigate and test the conceptual model using historical analysis of channel locations and geometry, and field-based channel characteristics of case studies. The wandering Renous River was mapped from aerial photographs (1945, 1965, 1983 and 1999) to determine river pattern statistics and for historical analysis of case studies. It appears that anabranch pairs with similar energy characteristics are more stable than anabranches where these characteristics are out of balance
