Spatial patterns of geomorphic processes in channelized tributary streams

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. examines spatial patterns of widening and incision in 3 tributary streams of the Lower Hatchie River (west Tennessee) with similar land use history and geology, using w/d ratios calculated from field measurements of channel morphology. The results suggest that channel incision dominates 2 of the tributaries, while widening dominates a third tributary. The dominance of channel widening or incision throughout a system results in large amounts of sediment being produced throughout the system at one time
