Three braided rivers of different scales and different hydrologic/geomorphologic characteristics (the Aichilik and Hulahula in Alaska and the Brahmaputra in Bangladesh) are analyzed for spatial scaling using a logarithmic correlation integral method developed earlier by the authors. It is shown that the rivers exhibit anisotropic scaling (self-affinity… (More)
