Description: Potamology Report
Summary: This report presents the results of an analysis of data obtained in connection with the investigation of the stability of revetted riverbanks. The data consist of plots of the results of surveys made periodically during a high-water period and at the beginning of the low-water season. The surveys were made at selected ranges along five revetted banks and along a caving bank scheduled to be revetted. The results of the analysis indicate how changes in the channel bed along riverbanks can be effected by changes in river stages. Scour or shoaling can result from high stages, depending on the alignment and configuration of the channel upstream. The analysis also indicates some of the factors which tend to affect the stability of riverbanks.
