Title: The fate of large sediment inputs in rivers: Implications for watershed and waterway management

Author: Lisle, Thomas E.;

Date: 2000

Source: AEG News 43(4): 99.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Valued resources in and along stream channels are commonly many river miles downstream of large sediment inputs such as landslides. Evaluating and predicting the arrival, severity, and duration of sediment impacts thus requires an understanding of how river channels digest elevated sediment loads.

Keywords: PSW4351, stream channels, sediment, landslides, watershed, aggradation, numerial modeling
