Based on historical aerial photographs and geographic information system (GIS) analysis, the aims of this research were to (1) develop an active reach classification scheme that provides an objective means of identifying and evaluating longitudinal patterns of instability in this and other Ozark rivers, (2) identify active reaches and different forms of instability along 80 km of the Finley River in southwest Missouri, and (3) investigate physical controls on active reaches. The lack of a dominant active reach form, along with a stable main stem sinuosity over time, suggests that the Finley River is a semi-stable, self-organized system in balance with watershed inputs since at least 1955, the date of the earliest photo series
