Towards a theory for step pools in stream channels

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper synthesizes the recent literature on step pools, with particular reference to theory construction and progress made over the past decade and a half. Four groups of contribution are identified. The first focuses on understanding morphological relations in order to seek causal mechanisms. The second emphasizes processes that result from the step-pool configuration. The third is a group of integrative studies that seek broader explanations for step pools sequences. The fourth and growing body of literature applies what has been learned about step pools toward managing and restoring steep channels
