Logjam attenuation of annual sediment waves in eolian-fluvial environments, North Park, Colorado
Sediment waves, a term that describes the fluvial transport of a discrete sediment influx, have long been studied in regard to channel response to infrequent, catastrophic events, such as mass movements or dam removal. However, few researchers have studied (1) the potential presence of sediment waves of annual or sub-annual scale in mixed eolian-fluvial geomorphic environments or (2) the role of large wood in sediment wave dispersal. This study addresses both topics through observations of North Sand Creek and East Sand Creek, which flow alongside the active sand dunes of North Sand Hills and ...
