Project Summary: "This work investigated the relationship between oxbow lake geometry and sedimentation for numerous oxbows along the middle and lower reaches of the Brazos River. Specific attributes investigated include: A) the angle of diversion; B) cutoff ration; C) main channel-lake connections, and D) flood-connections. As is common in geomorphic systems at this scale, (i.e., channel scale) there is non-linearity in the various characteristics of oxbows.

As described in the scope of work, there were four tasks for this project:
* Quantify rates of planform oxbow development:
* Quantify rates of sediment deposition and meander cutoff in-fillng for selected localities along the Brazos River;
* Categorize oxbows and meander scrolls based on their morphologic and hydrologic properties; and
* Develop a chronology of development of an oxbow lake, as it progresses from meandering bend to remnant oxbow lake."
