Abstract

A classification system for natural rivers is presented in which a morphological arrangement of stream characteristics is organized into relatively homogeneous stream types. This paper describes morphologically similar stream reaches that are divided into 7 major stream type categories that differ in entrenchment, gradient, width/depth ratio, and sinuosity in various landforms. Recent stream type data used to further define classification interrelationships were derived from 450 rivers throughout the U.S., Canada, and New Zealand. Examples for use of this classification system for engineering and water ressource applications are presented
