Which tributaries disrupt downstream fining along gravel-bed rivers?
RICE S. ;
In this paper a procedure for identifying significant lateral (tributary) sources, whithout the benefit of grain-size information, is outlined. A high-resolution characterisation of bed material texture along 2 Canadian gravel-bed rivers facilated classification of all their perennial tributaries as either significant or insignificant. 3 absolute tributary basin parameters and their relative counterparts, chosen to reflect the likely controls on tributary significance, are then used to develop a discriminant function which isolates a large proportion of significant tributaries while minimising incorrect classifications
