Title: Sediment transport-storage relations for degrading, gravel bed channels

Author: Lisle, Thomas E.; Church, Michael;

Date: 2002

Source: Water Resources Research 38(11): 1219, doi:10.1029/2001WR001086, 2002.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: In a drainage network,sediment is transferred through a series of channel/valley segments (natural sediment storage reservoirs) that are distinguished from their neighbors by their particular capacity to store and transport sediment. We propose that the sediment transport capacity of each reservoir is a unique positive function of storage volume, which influences sediment mobility and availability through variations in bed surface texture, channel gradient, and availability of valley floor sediments for erosion.

Keywords: PSW4351, sediment transport, sediment storage, alluvial reservoirs, bedload, armoring
