Hydraulic geometry relationships which were comparable to those of Lacey"s were derived but these differentiated between the impact of bed alluvium and bank material where these were unlike.
Bed substrate; flow type; channel modification; bank material, modifications, and features; channel vegetation type (within 10 m); banktop land use (within 5 m); and vegetation structure (within 1 m) are recorded within each spot-check.
Comparing element contents of suspended sediment samples and source areas, we found that most samples fall in the ranges of aeolian sand and channel bank material and out of the range of argillaceous arkose sandstone (Table 2).
Through numerical modeling with bank stability software, our research team has demonstrated that these undercuts exponentially reduce the stability of a bank as the depth of the undercut increases, leading to cantilever failures of the upper bank material. Seepage can also reduce the resistance of bank sediment to be mobilized by fluvial forces.
Because it is in the top layers, sediment derived from shallow (hillslope) erosion will register high concentrations of radioactivity, whereas sediment from deeper gully erosion or the erosion of subsurface channel bank material will have little.
[V.sub.T] is the total compound volume in the open mill (band material plus bank material), [dm.sup.3];
The bank material remains dryer under low flow conditions, which will also aid in bank stability.
The BR380JG-1 is capable of crushing bank material, rock and debris to a 2-inch to a 6-inch end product.
The breadth of central bank material to be generated, reviewed, and mastered is staggering.
In this study, with the help of the entire Swedish Pine Stem Bank material, the relationship between the sideboard's quality and the log's quality and the relationship between the quality of sideboards and of centerboards were studied.
The mine reports a July average of bank material loaded of 880 [m.sup.3]/h and expects at least a 15% improvement in this rate as personnel become more familiar with its operation.
