Abstract

The distribution of large woody debris (LWD) was studied along the concave outer bend of 3 meanders in the Ain River. The Ain River is a sixth-order channel dominated by a gravel-cobble bed substrate that meanders through a floodplain covered largely by riparian forest vegetation. The total LWD deposited along concavities was most strongly controlled by meander-bend geometry. Findings from this study are applicable to restore alluvial forests along French rivers
