Abstract

In a 20 km river reach in which channel platform changes progressively downstream from braided to meandering, there is a corresponding down-valley change in bar type from mid-channel compound bars to bank-attached compound bars to point bars. Four fluvial morphostratigraphic units, defined in terms of their surface morphology and sedimentary characteristics, are differentiated: bar platform, chute channel, ridge, and remnant floodplain. -from Author
