INTRODUCTION Many of the most compelling patterns expressed on the Earth's surface relate to the organization of channel networks and their associated valleys. Although systematic downstream variations in river channel properties, such as width, depth, and velocity, have been extensively characterized and used for river management since the seminal work of Leopold and Maddock (1953), surprisingly few insights regarding variations in valley fl oor width have emerged. From experience, one expects… CONTINUE READING
