Gross channel changes along the Durance River, southern France, over the last 100 years using cartographic data



Gross channel changes along the Durance River, southern France, over the last 100 years using cartographic data



Regulated Rivers 16(2): 141-157



Gross channel changes for the Durance were determined using topographic maps from the 1890s and 1980s. Various width parameters were measured at 1 km intervals over 189 km from the Rhone junction at Avignon to La Saulce, some 31 km downstream of the dam at Serre Poncon, France. During this period channel size has been considerably reduced. This was attributed to four factors, two natural and two human induced.
