Wandering Miramichi rivers, New Brunswick, Canada

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This research addresses 3 objectives : to provide a detailed description of the location, pattern characteristics and boundary conditions of wandering Miramichi rivers; to compare the pattern characteristics among wandering rivers within the Miramichi basin and to other wandering, meandering and braided rivers; and to investigate formative processes for wandering Miramichi rivers. Wandering rivers within the Miramichi region occur in larger valleys located downstream of an abrupt change in bedrock from resistive to more erosive bedrock lithology. Wandering Miramichi rivers may represent another anabranching river pattern type, different from anastomosed and previously described wandering rivers
