Abstract

The AA. present data from a proglacial river in Iceland that exhibits very different sedimentological characteristics when compared to its alpine counterparts. On the basis of their observations the AA. conclude that braidplain morphology is controlled by low frequency, high magnitude flow events, possibly associated with glacial outburst floods. This is in marked contrast to process-form relationships in more dynamic alpine proglacial channels that are characterised by high rates of sediment transport and channel change
