Abstract

The aim of this study is to quantitatively investigate the nature of channel planform change over a 75-km length of the lower Trinity River where Livingston Dam is currently regulating discharge. Historic air photos are used to establish a baseline study of planform change prior to dam construction. Photographs taken after commencement of flow regulation document the subsequent adjustment to the channel downstream. In conjunction, the temporal distribution of flows from the same period, 1938 to 1995, was analyzed in an effort to determine : the effects of impoundment on flow regime; the effects of impoundment on channel migration; and whether correlations truly exist between flow regime and channel activity
