Streambank erosion can be an important form of channel change in unstable alluvial environments. It should be accounted for in geomorphic studies, river restoration, dam removal, and channel maintenance projects. Recently, one-dimensional and two-dim...

Near-bed and surface flow division patterns in experimental river bifurcations (2014)
Journal Article
Marra, W. A., Parsons, D. R., Kleinhans, M. G., Keevil, G. M., & Thomas, R. E. (2014). Near-bed and surface flow division patterns in experimental river bifurcations. Water Resources Research, 50(2), 1506-1530. https://doi.org/10.1002/2013WR014215

Understanding channel bifurcation mechanics is of great importance for predicting and managing multichannel river processes and avulsion in distributary river deltas. To date, research on river channel bifurcations has focused on factors determining... Read More about Near-bed and surface flow division patterns in experimental river bifurcations.
