How does a mountain river adjust to accommodate repeated flood hydrographs? Do flood hydrographs cause major cycles of aggradation and degradation of the river bed? Here flume experiments are used to explore this problem. The response of a gravel-bed river to repeated floods is modeled in the simplest possible way. Gravel size is held uniform, the flume is operated in sediment-feed mode, and the gravel feed rate is held constant. The flow discharge, on the other hand, is specified in terms of… CONTINUE READING
