Abstract: The system behavior of meanders was investigated on the Red River between Shreveport, LA, and Index, AR. The effects of plan form geometry (r/w) and erodibility of bank material on the erosion rate of meanders was documented. Using this information, a technical basis for projecting bankline locations into the future was established.
