Summary

Alluvial channels are continuously modified by sediment movement and exist in comparative equilibrium. The longitudinal profiles and cross-sections of these channels depend on hydraulic and sediment factors and boundary conditions which govern channel morphology. This chapter discusses the theory of channel mobility leading to stable hydraulic geometry.
