Abstract

Recent studies regarding the climate variability in South America during the 20th century, revealed the existence of climate cycles that influenced the hydrologic conditions in the Paraná River basin. How that variability affected the channel morphology of this river in its middle reach is quantitatively analyzed in this paper. The link between climate, hydrology and channel morphology is obtained through the computation of effective discharge. The analysis involved the processing of more than 180 bathymetric charts, satellite images and hydraulic and sedimentologic data recorded in the Paraná River since the very beginning of the 20th century
