Description
Summary:A computer model to describe the fluvial geomorphology of the Susitna River in Alaska is being created in order to determine the effects of the proposed Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project on the river's fluvial geomorphology, and it will be submitted as part of the licensing application. Knowledge of bed material size in the center of the channel is important for predicting bed response in the 1-D and 2-D bed evolution models. This memorandum presents the data from the winter 2013/2014 effort and provides the first quantitative assessment of bed material sizes. Of the 27 sampling locations, 23 were located on the Susitna River, and two each were located on the major tributaries, the Chulitna River and Talkeetna River.
