Abstract:

Evidence suggests that for perennial and ephemeral rivers that are in regime, bankfull flow is strongly correlated with channel morphology. Evidence suggests that this discharge is also correlated with the effective discharge for transporting sediment load. The daily exceedance of the effective discharge appears to vary between rivers depending on flow variability and sediment transport regime.
