Abstract

This particular study examines the effects of minor climatic fluctuations and major land-use changes on the Drury Creek watershed located in southwestern Illinois. The distribution of coarse bedload material along tributary streams combined with downstream decreases in width : depth ratios and tractive force estimates suggest that channels in the Drury Creek watershed are slowly adjusting their configuration to transport coarse bedload material. The fluvial response to the increased influx of coarse sediment began more than 45 years ago and continues today
