Abstract : A literature review has now been complied and written up and is enclosed as part of this document. The second field data set will begin to shed light on the temporal dynamics of woody debris and will show the stability of debris jams at different channel scales, and the input/output rate of debris from the survey reaches. Because thalweg are not surveyed during the winter trip, bed level adjustments associated with debris jams cannot be assessed. However, the forth-coming summer survey will provide a new set of thalweg data which can be overlayed on the summer 1994 thalweg plots to determine relative rates of bed elevation change. (MM)
