Topology and ecohydrology of river corridors in mountain river networks, The
River corridors are comprised of the river, the surrounding valley and riparian areas, and subsurface hyporheic zones. River corridors have the potential to regulate hydrological, biogeochemical, and ecological processes and patterns from reach to watershed scales. Within mountainous landscapes, narrow sections of the river corridor are often interspersed within wider, yet less frequent, river corridor sections. Reach-scale studies (i.e., 1 km) suggest that wide river corridors, also referred to as river-floodplain systems and river beads in this dissertation, have disproportionate impacts on ...
