Abstract:

A three-year study of sediment displacement was conducted on a short section of the Ottauquechee River in Vermont that has erosional problems caused by ice. The results of cross-sectional surveys showed large quantities of the bank eroded and deposition in the bed within the study area. The erosion appears to have been caused by 1 the ice scouring the banks, and 2 ice plugging the channel and diverting the flow toward the banks. Author
