Abstract

Flood scars, abundant along rivers of heavily forested northern British Columbia, provide records of flood occurrence and magnitude in a region with few and relatively short gaging records. Log transport during floods is episodic and occurs almost immediately preceding and during peak stage. Many of these logs are sequestered in bankside vegetation where they form abrasion wounds on trees by rubbing up and down in the turbulent waters
