Abstract

In the North Fork Toutle River at Kid Valley, Washington, weak correlation between flow depth and the standard deviation of bed elevation was noted. Dunes were often superposed on larger bed forms with wave periods between 10 and 30 min. Gradual changes in waveform height and periodicity occurred over several hours during storm runoff. Rates of migration for typical dunes were estimated to be 3 cm s-1, and dune wavelengths were estimated to be 6 to 7 m. -from Author
