Abstract
Description
This study seeks to describe and quantify channel activity and flow regime, identifying effects of the 1968 closure of Livingston dam. Channel activity rates do not indicate a more stabilized planform following dam closure; rather they suggest that the Trinity River is adjusting itself to the stress of Livingston dam in a slow, gradual process that may not be apparent in a modern time scale.
