The time that is lost remains the same, but the amount of yield increases, and therefore the efficiency rises.

The grain‐size distribution of sands in newly developed dunes of steppes that have undergone wind‐driven degradation in the headwaters of the Yangtze River and on the Zoige Plateau, in the Yellow River's upper reaches, is typical of dune sands. The mean size ranges from mm (φ) to mm (φ), with the standard deviation Cited by: In this study, an approach similar to Ziegler et. al. () is adopted. The entire spectrum of the sediment size is segregated into 2 size groups, a fine (cohesive) group with sediment size less than 62 pm, and a coarse (noncohesive) group with sediment size larger than 62 gm.

The size of the amalgamated meander belt ( km2) is significantly larger than any documented previously and comparable in size to those from modern sedimentary basins. An example is lag gravel from an old stream deposit. If there is sufficient pore space for fines to deposit in, the gravel may remain exposed, suggesting a high-energy environment.

Coarse sands and sandy gravels are good indicators of high-energy environments if they are modern deposits. The corresponding grain size may be termed as critical size for which ϖ U ∗ = 1 (Lane and Kalinske, ).

The terminal fall velocity (ϖ) for the grain of critical size may be obtained from the equation proposed by Gibbs et al. It is assumed that the flow top was at f–f′ during deposition of this : P.

However, facies variations orthogonal to the channels are more complex, as demonstrated in Fig where coarse clastic channel fills pass laterally into fine-grained overbank units over distances of a few hundred meters.

Debris-1lo\v deposits—Some workers refer to both fine-grained and coarse-grained types of plastic flowage in stream channels as mudflows, but others consider mudfiows to be fine-grained debris flows.

Unlike coarse-grained soils for which erodibility is primarily a function of grain-size distribution and secondarily a function of grain shape and packing, erodibility of fine-grained soil is dominated by other factors such as apparent or true cohesion, porewater pressure, and root reinforcement.

Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. The shape of orbital ripples is very sensitive to grain size: when fine sand is used in experiments and the bed is subjected to large-scale, faster near bed orbital motion, hummocky 3-D orbital ripples form, whereas when the fine sand is replaced by coarse sand, sharp-crested 2-D orbital ripples form instead.

Bedload transport, consisting primarily of coarse sands or larger particles, is complex and sporadic, and has major implications regarding channel morphology and the quality of spawning gravels. It is greatly affected by large roughness elements (logs, boulders, bedrock outcrops, etc.).

Recent development of fluvial facies models has been due to improved description of natural river and floodplain processes and deposits using: (1) ground-penetrating radar (GPR) combined with cores and trenches to describe modern deposits in 3D; (2) study of frozen rivers to allow easy access to the entire channel belt and procurement of undisturbed cores; (3) optically stimulated luminescence.

Drier climates, in general, have fewer stream channels and less deeply incised stream channels. Roads in these watersheds encounter fewer stream channels and typically have shallower crossings. The geology has a broad effect on the pattern of the main stream channel in a Size: 5MB.
