Abstract:The types of braided channels of major rivers that show the most complex morphology and rearrangement are considered. The formation conditions of these channels are analyzed, and a relationship accounting for both the hydrological and morphological properties is proposed. The parameter of this relationship is demonstrated to distinguish each type of braiding.
