Geomorphic observations of rivers in the Oregon Coast Range from a regional reconnaissance perspective

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents the results of examining some aspects of river morphometry in Western Oregon to better understand the geologically recent history of Pacific-plate subduction. Changes in long profile, gradient, gradient index, pseudo-hypsometric integral, valley incision, and sinuosity fractal dimension were studied. All data were gathered from topographic quadrangles and geologic maps, and so the results are limited to the description of river forms with only limited interpretations
