Estimating mean flow velocity in channel and floodplain areas and its use for esplaining the pattern of overbank deposition and floodplain retention

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A method was developed which permits estimation of the mean flow velocity in the channel and floodplain zones at a given total discharge taken from a rating curve. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate its utility for explaining the depositional action of flood flow and the role of a floodplain in the transfer and retention of flood water. Results obtained are presented for three cross-sections located on mountain, foothill and piedmont rivers within the upper Vistula drainage basin, southern Poland, and are considered in relation with the pattern of floodplain sedimentation caused by a major flood of July 1997
