Description: Technical Note
From the Introduction: this technical note provides an analytic assessment of one of the primary constraints associated with sediment diversion design: the riverside effects of sediment diversions. This document includes the following:1.) A discussion of the fundamental principles of the physics of sediment diversions. 2.) A qualitative analysis of the primary riverside effects of diversions. 3.) Analytic tools to yield quantitative estimates of these effects.
