Hi! I have questions for following:
In the stream table experiment, when discharge is increased, what happens to the rate of erosion of the channel banks?
1) If the banks of the channel erode so much that water breaches the channel banks and flows out onto the floodplain, what can happen?
2) 2 examples of how erosion of the channel banks, bed and floodplain could impact humans.
3) Read article “Researchers’ Chance Viewing of River Cutoff Forming Provides Rare Insight.” Where did erosion occur in this case, and where did aggradation/deposition occur? Why do you think this was the case?
