The primary aim of this paper is to introduce new high-quality measured data on the hydraulics of a set of representative steep mountain channels located in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia as a representative guide to assessing flow resistance in this type of environment. These data have been obtained for a range of discharges sufficient to define, for the low-flow domain, the at-a-station hydraulic geometry at each measurement site. A secondary aim of this paper is to discuss the nature of total flow resistance in relation to that which might be attributed to grain roughness alone within the low-flow discharge domain
