Abstract

This paper critically examines equilibrium and nonequilibrium conditions in dryland rivers. After discussing the concept and nature of equilibrium, the AA. provide examples of nonequilibrium behavior in dryland rivers. They then use examples from the Channel Country and the Northern Plains in central Australia to demonstrate that large sections of dryland rivers can be in equilibrium. The paper concludes with a discussion of the factors that may be important in determining whether a particular dryland river, or reach of river, is in an equilibrium or nonequilibrium condition
