Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition

Featured

Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin
August 8, 2017

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of ...
