Abstract

Studies of the bedload transport regime of the Roaring River, Colorado, in 1984-88, following a dambreak flood in 1982, showed that bedload transport rates were an order of magnitude higher than under pre-flood conditions. Data collected in 1995, 13 years after the flood, are compared with measurements made during 1984-88 to investigate the longer term variation of transport regime. The measurements demonstrate both the control exercised by sediment supply on transport rates and the persistent long-term impact of major floods on mountain streams
