Depositional Features Influences
Excessive sediment Deposition is associated with increases in width to depth ratios and decreases in Channel Slope. The placement of the channel material will influence the in channel hydraulics, subsequent Deposition, and the next sequence of channel type that forms. Several types of Depositional features are shown in this image.
Point bars, point bars with few mid-channel bars, numerous mid-channel bars, and side bars are shown in the left column. Diagonal bars, main channel branching with numerous mid-bars and islands, side bars and mid-channel bars with length exceeding 2-3 channel widths are shown in the right column.
