Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
Flow frequency curves supported the hypothesis that channel-forming flows are exceptional events in ephemeral mountain streams. This was substantiated by the lack of a relationship between sediment production and sediment yield. Numerous bed nickpoints indicated channel instability, despite gravel bars and log steps that are part of the slope adjustment processes. Due to differences in structural density between bars and steps, size distribution of the sediment deposits above them differs. Although only qualitative guidelines are presented, the watershed or wildlife manager should be in a position to utilize the formation of gravel bars and log steps for his management goals.
