In this study, the AA. use a variety of data sources to assess the historical changes along the lower Canadian River floodplain and identify feedbacks among floodplain cultivation (by 1898), dam construction (1964), specific stream power, and channel width, slope, and sinuosity. Finally, they combine the results of this study with others in the region to present a biogeomorphic response model for large Great Plains rivers that characterizes channel width changes in response to climate variability and anthropogenic disturbances
