Abstract : This report contains a compilation of results and conclusions from four research projects assessing the impact of Large Woody Debris (LWD) on channel geomorphology in the Yazoo Basin, Northern Mississippi, and the impact and control of LWD at hydraulic structures. The long-term aim of this research is an improved understanding of the basin-wide impact of LWD dynamics in unstable and stable channel environments, the development of coherent basin-wide debris management strategies for erosion control, habitat enhancement, and maintenance/design procedures for DEC and run-of-river structures, based upon sound engineering-geomorphic analyses.
