Abstract

Lakes in the Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho, were created during glaciation and the AA. sought to understand how and to what extent glacial morphology and lake disruption of fluxes control stream physical form and functions. First, they described downstream patterns in channel form including analyses of sediment entrainment and hydraulic geometry in one catchment with a lake. Furthermore, they collected data from 33 stream reaches throughout the region to compare channel form and functions among catchments with lakes, meadows (filled lakes), and present lakes. The results suggest that sediment sinks, such as lakes, in addition to sources, such as tributaries, are important local controls on mountain drainage networks
