This study examines spatial patterns of sediment entrainment potential in 3 alluvial streams in the Lower Hatchie River Basin of western Tennessee with a history of channelization and significant land use change (historic deforestation). The purpose is to determine if the streams have enough energy to transport the volumes of material they receive via bank failure processes. The results suggest that there is great potential for in-channel sediment storage features to be reworked and to serve as secondary sources of sediment well into the future
