Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the relative importance of surface-gravity waves on sandbar stability in Grand Canyon, in contrast to unidirectional currents that are the primary focus of most fluvial studies. A second objective is to evaluate the utility of coastal theory and methodology in the investigation of river sandbar stability. Such information may be useful in the development of management strategies for the Colorado River below Grand Canyon Dam and other regulated rivers where waves are part of the flow field
