Abstract

Prior to significant European settlement of the area in the 1850s, lower Bega River on the South Coast of NSW had a narrow, relatively deep channel lined by river oaks. By 1926 the channel had widened extensively (up to 340%) and shallowed in association with bed aggradation by coarse sandy bedload. Floodplain accretion was dominated by fine to medium sands and the riparian vegetation was altered. This study quantifies the impact that land use practices (forest clearance), have had on the morphology and behaviour of Bega River
