Title: Sediment pulses in mountain rivers. Part 1. Experiments

Author: Cui, Y.; Parker, G.; Lisle, T. E.; Gott, J.; Hansler, M. E.; Pizzuto, J. E.; Almendinger, N. E.; Reed, J. M.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Sediment often enters rivers in discrete pulses associated with landslides and debris flows. This is particularly so in the case of mountain streams. The topographic disturbance created on the bed of a stream by a single pulse must be gradually eliminated if the river is to maintain its morphological integrity. Two mechanisms for elimination have been identified: translation and dispersion.

Keywords: PSW4351, sediment, sediment pulse, landslides, debris flows, translation, dispersion, mountain rivers
