A regional trend to meander migration.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The meandering Beatton River, British Columbia, Canada, has a distinctive scroll-patterned floodplain within which the channel is free to migrate laterally. Along much of the study reach of the Beatton River, however, there is an average 20 degree eastward (leftward) departure from this direction. Regional post-glacial isostatic tilting with a dip of 0.0003 to 0.0004 to the east appears to have augmented easterly directed flow velocities, resulting in an easterly bias to channel migration. -from Author
