Abstract

Field investigations of natural levees were conducted in the developing avulsion belt of the lower Saskatchewan River. One goal of the study was to examine geometric characteristics and the variations in shape of levees. Another goal was to examine the surficial grain-size distributions of levee deposits to determine lateral variations from the channel margin to the floodbasin. The relationships between the topography and lateral grain-size variations were then assessed in the context of the development and evolution of levees
