The life span of fault-crossing channels | Science

This post was originally published on this site

The importance of sedimentation in the life span of fault-crossing channels suggests that bedload transport, rather than the stream’s ability to erode the bed, limits their long-term evolution. In a transport-limited channel, the rate of aggradation, va [L/T], implicitly determines the time required for a channel to avulse, tc [T]: h c t c …
