The incision of bess base stream channels is a common and destructive response to alterations within a watershed in the midwest. Monitoring and evaluating procedures are being performed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on stream channels in an eastern Nebraska watershed. Currently studies have been focused on the high, steep channel banks in the watershed. Techniques used in channel bank analyses can aid in determining reaches with stable bank height and angle configurations, and in determining possible stable bank height and angle configurations for unsteady reaches.
