Abstract

The analysis focuses on profile form and channel slope along the River Noe and its 6 largest tributaries. The basin is underlain by 3 main lithologies, sandstone, shale and limestone. Channel bed slope is steep in upstream reaches and the streams respond rapidly to rainfall events of even moderate magnitude. Consequently bed material transport occurs relatively frequently. Sediment transport is thus an active process, especially but not exclusively in the upper reaches. However, given the coarseness of the load, amounts of sediment transport are likely to be small, even during flood flows
