Abstract

Sediment-sorting processes related to varying channel-bed morphology were investigated from April to November 1993 along a 1-km pool-riffle and step-pool reach of North Saint Vrain Creek, a small mountain stream in the Rocky Mountains of northern Colorado. Measured cross-sectonal areas of flow and tracer particle deposition patterns were used to determine if water-surface slope and recirculating eddy-induced velocity reversals provide a viable pool-riffle sediment-sorting mechanism
