There were 3 purposes to this study. The first was to quantify the mechanisms and timing of channel response along a 100 km length of river following a major increase in sediment load. Channel response can be defined in several ways, and in this paper the AA. use channel-bed elevation, channel width, pool-riffle morphology and sediment transport rates as measures of response. A second purpose was to define the magnitude and transit rates of an aggradational wave of sediment during a sequence of moderate peak flows. The third objective was to compare and quantify changes in the mass of channel-stored sediment to sediment yields in the drainage basin
