Alluvial riverbed elevation responds to the balance between sediment supply and transport capacity, which is largely dependent on climate and its translation into fl uvial discharge. We examine these relations using U.S. Geological Survey streamfl ow and channel measurements in conjunction with basin characteristics for 915 reference (“least disturbed”) measurement stations across the conterminous United States for the period A.D. 1950‐2011. We fi that (1) 68% of stations have bed elevation… CONTINUE READING
