Abstract

This research presents flume studies designed to identify the processes responsible for step-pool formation. The experimental design includes a broad range of flow rates and sediment transport rates to address questions of how the step-pool bedform develops and the channel conditions most likely to produce step sequences. The experimental design included flow rates that created active transport and deposition of all sediment sizes, including the step-forming grains. This research evaluates the pre-existing formation models and proposes 3 new models : the rough bed, exhumation and dune models
