The shape can also reveal information on the force required to carve sediment from its bank.
Models suggest that the shape of river valleys depends strongly on how meandering rivers interact with the sediment and bedrock of the banks.
In a flat sand bed, water creates undulating features.
The Clean Rivers Project aims to dramatically reduce combined sewage overflows into D. C.’s waterways, improving water quality while also promoting resilience to climate change.
New study rethinks dynamics of runoff-driven erosion in response to rainstorms.
Scientist creates a numerical model that explores sediment transport.
By changing the flow of the river, aquatic plants affect the distribution of nutrients on the riverbed.
The rapid development of dams in the Mekong River Basin could pose a threat to future environmental stability.
Colonies of tiny caddisflies slow stream sediment transport with their silk nets.
Scientists create models to help them figure out how the slope of a river can record ancient tectonic activity.
