On the magnitude and frequency of sediment transport in rivers
What flow or range of flows is most responsible for transporting sediment and maintaining sediment continuity in a river over human time scales? This question has inspired scores of studies analyzing the magnitude and frequency of sediment transport (MFA) in rivers and has been a part of the ongoing debate regarding process vs. form-based approaches to stable channel design. MFA in rivers is of general scientific and management interest as it influences channel form, water quality, aquatic habitat, and channel restoration design considerations. The research presented in this dissertation asks ...
