Characteristics of coarse woody debris and its impact on urban streambed process and structure, North Buffalo Creek, Greensboro, USA 2007 3376 "Coarse woody debris is important in contemporary urban stream channel systems yet little is known about the dynamics and characteristics of CWD and its impact on streambed process and structure. Measurements of CWD pieces included length, diameter, ...
Use of LiDAR data in defining the urban-rural transition zone in stream cross-section morphology 2009 1747 Stream channel geometries have been found to enlarge with urbanization of the upland drainage basin. Although enlargement has been documented in a variety of climatic and urban regimes, little is known about how the geomorphic effects of urbanization...
Hydrogeomorphology of alluvial benches in an anabranching reach of the Upper Yadkin River, North Carolina 2012 6282 Prior research has been carried out to determine the relationships between flows cited as important to channel form and the morphology of step-like features bordering streams known as alluvial benches. However little effort has been undertaken to und...
Nineteenth century land-use, watershed erosion, and sediment yield in southern Appalachia 2012 2490 The purpose of this research was to gain insight into the anthropogenic forcing of geomorphic systems, specifically how nineteenth century land-use changes impacted watershed hydrologic, upland erosional, and sediment delivery subsystems of Southern ...
Beaver dam features influencing stream channel form in the mountain and piedmont physiographic provinces of North Carolina 2015 941 As beaver return to North Carolina, their role as ecosystem engineer is becoming more apparent. In this study, I examine variables related to beaver dam construction and ponding to look for relationships that may provide insight into the long term im...
Patterns of urban stream stability: relaxation times and the conditions of (dis)equilibrium in low-order urban watersheds 2016 389 There is a need to understand the drivers and process mechanisms by which urban stream channels change, to include the pathways through which they evolve. Finding appropriate criteria for accurate assessment of stream adjustment in urban environments...
Morphological response to reduced discharge on a losing Catawba River bifurcate 2016 549 River Channel bifurcations resulting from partial avulsions are features of fluvial systems that remain poorly understood. The southeastern Piedmont of North Carolina is an area where large bifurcated rivers are uncommon, yet in an area near the foot...
