Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The report , "Engineering Geology and Geomorphology of Streambank Erosion; Report 3, The Applications of Waterborne Geophysical Techniques in Fluvial Environments," was published by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) in February 1982. Report 3 presented the results of an investigation conducted in support of the Section 32 Program, "Streambank Erosion Control, Evaluation, and Demonstration Act of 1974, II." A review of Report 3 by U. S. Army Corps of Engineer organizations has identified significant errors in portions of Report 3 that describe the relationship of physical, hydrologic, and environmental processes to streambank erosion occurring along the Ohio River. The errors contained in Part IV, Data Collection and Analysis, Ohio River Survey Sites, are identified in this supplementary report. Paragraphs that contain significant errors are restated and data-based explanations of causation of streambank failure and erosion observed at Ohio River survey sites are provided.
