Abstract Contemporary (event to decadal-scale) morphological changes in two large braided rivers in Canterbury, New Zealand, are described, along with laboratory studies that support the field observations. In the process, some new developments in field and laboratory methods for investigating morphological change in braided rivers are presented, and Paola's (2001) hypothesis that braiding tendency should be influenced by a river's ability to turn over its bed within the characteristic time for… CONTINUE READING
