Morphological controls on the downstram passage of a sediment wave in a gravel-bed stream

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study documents the origin and downstream passage of an avulsion-generated sediment wave through a 374 m study reach of the Allt Dubhaig, Scotland. A nested survey framework was adopted, with volumes calculated from cross-sections spaced between 10 and 40 m apart documenting the origin and downstream passage of the wave. The specific aims of this study are to : 1) assess the significance of local morphology upon the passage of the wave; 2) determine the extent of sediment exchange between the recipient reach and the wave, and the effect of this upon wave magnitude; and 3) describe the channel response to wave input and assess the transience of these changes
