Bed morphology and sedimentology at chute cutoffs: A case study of Mackey Bend, lower Wabash River, IL-IN

Abstract

Depositional processes at active chute cutoffs on meandering rivers are ultimately responsible for bend abandonment and oxbow lake formation, and also influence the morphologic evolution of the cutoff channel. This paper examines bar-scale morphologic evolution of the bed and textural characteristics of bar surface sediments at an active chute cutoff on a large meandering river. These data are integrated with current understanding of flow structure at chute cutoffs in an effort to link processes of fluid flow and sediment transport with observed patterns of bed morphology and sediment texture.
