Equipment Used
from the towed sidescan sonar, how sand
is redistributed in channel from last survey;
from the rotating sidescan sonar, tracking dune migration as indication of
bed load transport rate;
studying sed. structures of the predam flood deposits and to compare grainsize
evolution with grainsize evolution from the 1996 flood;
to monitor sediment along the river corridor;
to compare past side scanning sonar surveys with the present by looking at
changes along the river corridor
Information to be Derived
distribution of sediment along 17 pools of the corridor; bedform migration 
information along selected pools; information about primary sedimentary 
structures deposited during experimental flow event
sampling and sidesan sonar
