The study analyses the morphological response of a gravel-bed river to discharges of different magnitude (from moderate events that occur several times a year to a 12-year flood) and so defines the range of formative discharges for single morphological units (channels, bars, islands) and a range of magnitude of morphological activity from the threshold discharges for gravel transport and minor bar modification up to flows causing major morphological changes. The study was conducted on the Tagliamento River, a large gravel-bed river in north-eastern Italy, using two different methods, analysis of aerial photographs and field observation of painted gravel particles.
