Abstract

Cooper Creek has developed a very extensive system of anastomosing channels, a distinctive feature of which is the preponderance of waterholes, which are readily identified as deepened and widened reaches of channel with more or less permanent water. They are widely distributed over the floodplain but tend to decrease in number downstream, possibly as a result of transmission losses which reduce erosive potential, and to develop preferentially towards the west, which has implications for the long-term relocation of the system
