Channel width—drainage area relations in small basins

M. J. Carragher, M. Klein, J. R. Petch

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The measurement of stream channels in basins less than 3 km2 shows compound relations between width and area. Break points in the relations may be attributed to the changing contribution of rapid storm flow and to the effect of bed material size.
