Because the stream sinuosity was similar to a reference reach, the existing stream slope and baseflow channel width were maintained.
Others took measurements of the stream slope and gradient and calculated the flow of the Ware River in cubic meters per second.
The changes include stream slope, stream width, stream depth, bed material, riparian vegetation, and aquatic life.
Of initial interest was a region of relatively warm water on the edge of the Continental Shelf that the Fish Commission called the Gulf Stream Slope. The abyssal waters extending seaward of this area soon became another scientific target of the Fish Commission.
These benefits typically include improved instream habitat conditions (for example, through the restoration of self-scouring pools at channel bends), improved flood storage, and enhanced longitudinal stability with lower stream slope.
The streams which spawn salmon are found to have lower stream slopes. This reduces their elevation and the stream gets steeper which increases the rate of erosion.
