Wang, Zhou, and Shao (2010) used a computational fluid dynamics model for simulation of two-dimensional water flow, sediment transport, bank failure processes, and the subsequent channel pattern changes.
100 to 200 feet) are likely to be insufficiently wide to restore the original meandering channel pattern to a lowland stream.
It's likely to be the absence of myelin that makes the difference in the sodium channel pattern.
By specifying a minimum time that the channel pattern must be stable the total skew plus one sample period, for example if triggering occurs, you can be sure that the desired state actually was reached.
Eventually, however, sediments filled in the grooves, obscuring this bypass channel pattern and contributing to the drowning of the platform blocks.
This service is a data driven, innovative methodology that provides banks with a forward-looking product strategy based on current and anticipated industry changes, account level profitability, marketplace analysis, statistical customer base segmentation, usage and channel pattern analytics and consumer opinion.
Construction process is to construct the new channel pattern.
It would be highly risky (and time consuming) to speculate on anything more than a reasonable retracement within the rising trend channel pattern.

After studying a computer simulation of channel patterns generated by tidal flow across a partially vegetated landscape, the team suggests that the more densely the vegetation grows, the larger the number of erosion channels that will develop in any particular area and the more erosion there will be overall.
This is quite a long section and provides a good background in fluvial geomorphology, including excellent discussions of channel patterns, river behaviour and adjustment, temporal changes and the response of rivers to human disturbance.
