Channel adjustment of an unstable coarse-grained stream: opposing trends of boundary and critical shear stress, and the applicability of extremal hypotheses

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



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
