Pool-fills: a window to palaeoflood history and response in bedrock-confined rivers

Article English OPEN
Jansen, J.D.; Brierley, G.J.;

Channel-scale sedimentary units associated with bedrock-controlled riffle-pool morphology are examined in detail along Sandy Creek gorge, an ephemeral stream in arid south-eastern central Australia. Pool-fills comprise cut-and-fill assemblages of poorly sorted sediments... View more
