Abstract

To visualize the change in the bed of Reecer Creek since the reconstruction of the riparian zone in 2011, we collected cross-sectional depth data from multiple sites in the restored zone. Combining past data from the same locations with the types and amount of sedimentation in the area, we were able to interpret how the creek has adapted to its new meandering course in the floodplain.
