Fluvial facies models : a review of Canadian research

published at : Special issue on Geomorphology in Canada

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Canadian river scientists made significant contributions to the early development (1960-80) of fluvial facies models, particularly to those for braided rivers. More recent Canadian studies (1980-92) have centred on understanding the facies sedimentology of anastomosed and wandering gravel-bed rivers. The scale problems of facies analysis may be overcome by employing architectural element analysis in conjunction with modern geophysical methods such as shallow reflection seismology and ground-penetrating radar. Futur research should focus on devising specific tests of element-scale sedimentological relationships based on the contemporary fluvial environment
