How do bends form in peat-land streams?

Jasper Candel


We propose a conceptual model to explain the origin of bends in peatland streams to better inform stream restoration.

Data-collection methods: Field survey measurements |

Management goals: Morphological understanding |

Management phase: Problem identification |

Spatial scale: Floodplain |

Study areas:

Temporal scale: Paleo evolution (periods of Earth history) |
