    Description

    Stream channels are integral to watershed function and are affected by watershed management decisions. Given an understanding of the relationships among channel and watershed variables, they may serve as indicators of upland condition or used in distributed rainfall-runoff models. This paper presents a quantitative analysis of fluvial morphology as related to watershed characteristics for two disparate sites in Arizona. Detailed geographic information system (GIS) analyses were combined with 297 cross-section surveys. Statistical relationships among GIS-based watershed and field-based channel variables are presented and explanations for discrepancies between sites are given.
