Abstract

The eruption of Mount St. Helens, Washington, and the conseqent disruption of the Toutle River system in 1980 has provided the opportunity to collect and analyse a data set that includes hydraulic, sediment transport, sedimentologic, and morphologic information. Rapid and dramatic changes in channel morphology from 1980 to 1992 make the Toutle River system a natural laboratory in which to investigate the validity of extremal hyotheses on a temporal basis using both force (or stream energy and stream power) and resistance criteria
