The aim of this work is to quantify whether and how the presence of a complex three-dimensional (3D) morphology due to alternate bars in a straight channel may generate an additional contribution to total drag resistance and sediment transport, as compared to the equivalent one-dimensional (1D) case of a flat and straight bed, having the same channel slope and average flow velocity. The calculations result in a method for correcting 1D models to account for the total sediment transport and resistance in a cross-section due to 3D effects of alternate bars. The AA. term the resulting relations "morphologically averaged" sediment transport and resistance equations
