Abstract

In this watershed, the conversion from natural vegetation to agriculture resulted in the development of incised meander belts along streams. These belts consist of alluvial terraces that confine flood flows to a relatively narrow portion of the valley. This study examines interaction of this landform and the process of flooding over a range of flood magnitudes. The analysis also deploys a mathematical model that compares flood discharges in the current system and an alternative system which lacks terraces for confining flood flows within the meander belt
