Description: Technical note
OVERVIEW: The National River Restoration Science Synthesis (NRRSS) demonstrated that, in 2007, river and stream restoration projects and funding were at an all time high and increasing exponentially (Bernhardt et al. 2007). Increasingly, these restoration projects rely on “soft” engineering techniques involving planting riparian vegetation to alter channel and floodplain hydraulics or geomorphology. The ability to quantify the influence of vegetation on channel and floodplain hydraulics, in particular hydraulic roughness, is critical for flood control concerns; however, diversity of vegetation type and behavior makes this parameter very difficult to quantify repeatedly and accurately.
