Abstract:In conclusion, this research contributes to the field of fluvial geomorphology by advancing knowledge of the planform dynamics of meandering rivers. The intellectual merit of the research is the identification of the role of the spatial structure of planform curvature in the dynamics of meander migration. The new knowledge gained from the research provides an improved framework for understanding and predicting patterns of planform change along meandering rivers.
