Abstract

To better understand pool geometry and sorting characteristics of New England channels, characterizations of pool geometry were performed on 145 different pools strongly influenced by channel constrictions. The results suggest that pool dimensions are related to basin-wide variability and local hydraulic conditions. The findings also suggest that the characteristics of constrictions and the downstream section of pools provide an important control on scouring and sorting characteristics throughout the pool-riffle morphology
