Abstract

The AA. quantify large-scale expansion and contraction dynamics of surface waters along a braided section of the last remaining semi-natural large Alpine gravel-bed river (Tagliamento River). To assess surface-subsurface exchange patterns they measured discharge and vertical hydraulic gradients at multiple locations along the corridor. The results emphasize that even small changes in flow can cause major increases or decreases of ecosystem size, thereby creating a highly dynamic and harsh environment for both terrestrial and aquatic organisms
