The pool-riffle sequence as an important feature of river channels was described by Leopold et al. (1964) to occur with a spacing of five to seven times the channel width. Subsequent work has generally confirmed this spacing, although more closely spaced pools and riffles are quoted for some channels in woodland basins and for some channelized streams. Although few detailed empirical studies have been made of adjustments of the pool-riffle spacing, a detailed survey of a 6 km channel reach… Expand
