When there is a significant change in discharge or sediment load, due
to flood or construction of a reservoir for example, erosion and deposition
cause the geometry of an alluvial channel to change rapidly. in order to
achieve a new equi1ibrium condition. Because the process is a highly
complex mu1ti-component, multi-dimensional, and time dependent process its
complete mathematical modeling is not feasible at the present time.
