  • Using previously published data from flume studies, we test a new approach for quantifying the effects of sediment supply (i.e., bed material supply) on surface grain size of equilibrium gravel channels. Textural response to sediment supply is evaluated relative to a theoretical prediction of competent median grain size (D9 50). We find that surface median grain size (D50) varies inversely with sediment supply rate and systematically approaches the competent value (D9) at low equilibrium… CONTINUE READING
