Abstract

Time series analysis of streambed elevation in a meander bend along the Congaree River was used to determine the changes in bed form population succeeding a 16-year flood event. Variance spectra computed for a 595m longitudinal profile indicate that: a) the bed form variance for the flood record is significantly greater for all wavelengths from 5 to 30m; b) no well-demarcated bed form classes were present during the survey times, pointing to the possible existence of a continuum of bed form sizes rather than well-defined classes; and c) bed forms produced by the flood discharge were rapidly altered as the stage returned toward average level. -from Authors
