Abstract

The AA. develop a classification system for small headwater streams predicated upon an understanding of the dominant pysical processes acting in the channel and its basin, and the conditions under which these processes operate. The variables used to build the classification are hillslope gradient, valley width as compared to channel width, channel gradient, channel depth and sediment size. This classification system provides the foundation for building an approach for identifying basins and sreams that are comparably sensitive to landuse
