Abstract

The AA. examine some dynamics of wood transport in streams through a series of flume experiments, at the Publish Works Research Institute (PWRI), Tsukuba, Japan, and observe 3 distinct woodtransport regimes : uncongested, congested and semi-congested. They present an analytical model that predicts flow conditions required to entrain individual pieces. These experiments examined wood movement as a function of flow conditions, channel morphology, and wood size and input rate. Results of these experiments provide insight into how the depositional fabric of wood accumulations can be used to infer transport dynamics
