Width Adjustment: Relative Dominance in Unstable Alluvial Streamsby Andrew Simon, U.S. Geological Survey, Raleigh, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulic Engineering
Abstract: The mechanisms that control the relative dominance of width adjustment in unstable streams are described. Specifically, the role of the following factors affecting the fluvial environment were investigated: vertical processes and fluvial action, bed-material particle, cohesive strength of bank material, and riparian vegetation.
