Like many montane rivers in the western U. S., the Middle Fork of the John Day River is characterized by alternating narrowand wide-valley segments. Although the river has a low gradient (generally < 0.01) alluvial channel, changes in valley width exert a clear infl uence on channel morphology. A spatial hierarchical model of channel morphology was applied to the Middle Fork to understand reach-level and segment-level patterns of morphologic variation. Channel unit data for a 55-km long section… CONTINUE READING
