Abstract

This paper summarizes measurements of velocity along 3 reaches of a small mountain channel with step-pool bedforms. Data analyses focused on characteristics of velocity profiles, and on correlations between velocity characteristics and the potential control variables bedform type, reach gradient and flow depth. To test the hypothesis that velocity characteristics are related to channel bedform types, ANOVA and ANCOVA tests were performed. The bed-generated turbulence and skin friction of runs appear to be less effective energy dissipators than the wake-generated turbulence and form drag of step-pool bedforms
