Unformatted text preview: Iterative longitudinal profile and cross section surveys conducted during the first year after dam removal show morphologic adjustment including: 1) headward migration of small knickpoints approximately 34 m upstream; 2) channel development through previously restrained sediment; and 3)dominant marshy zones where there is poor channel definition. These data contribute to a baseline set for long-term monitoring studies and may serve as the basis of models to predict the supply of fine sediment to downstream spawning habitat. This work is significant in characterizing the long-term geomorphic response to small dam removal for creek restoration....
