Abstract

This paper presents the first accurate data from a dynamic alluvial channel that describe the interrelated effect on channel morphological change of both discharge and sediment supply variations over different timescales. Reliable information on the spatial patterns of erosion and deposition were obtained using combined photogrammetry and tacheometric survey of the meltwater stream of a glacierised catchment over a 5 week period. The implications of these findings for fluvial geomorphology in general are considered
