Abstract

The main aims of this work are to test the adequacy of several empirical methods to calculate local scouring in ephemeral channels affected by check dams, to compute the time evolution of the scour depth in live-bed conditions and to evaluate the influence of dams in the studied channel reaches, according to physical factors such as bed grain size, outcrops of bedrock and bed slope. Two catchments are studies here, drained by Cárcavo and Torrecilla torrential streams belonging to the Segura Basin
