Abstract

The form and structure of a tributary confluence bar in a regulated channel are analysed and related to channel adjustment to the imposed flow regime. The bar is characterized by a tripartite structure with two facies, and by marked lateral coarsening, characteristics which relate to the changing hydraulic conditions within the narrowing channel form.
