Brand new findings undermine a common useful assumption about the relationship between river channel geometry and the size of sediment grains on the riverbed

The seemingly simple question of what governs the shapes of river channels has been a longstanding challenge for geologists and civil engineers. A brand new study led by scientists at UC Santa Cruz shows that the amount of sediment a river transports is a key factor in determining river channel geometry and the size of the sediment grains on the riverbed.
