Effects of sediment supply, width variations, and unsteady flow on riffle-pool dynamics, The
Channel geometry, water discharge, and sediment supply work together to influence gravel-bed morphodynamics. How these forcings change and interact affects instream meso-scale geomorphic units, such as riffles and pools, which are often important habitat areas for aquatic organisms. Riffles and pools, defined as vertical undulations in the longitudinal bed profile, are often co-located with variations in channel width and their maintenance in natural systems is often attributed to unsteady flow effects. However, little work has been done to investigate the interaction between unsteady flow and ...
