CHANNEL EROSION IN SOUTHWESTERN LOUISIANA CANAL

Geomorphic process active in the man-made Southwestern Louisiana Canal are studied with the aid of color infrared and multiband imagery aerial photography and various field analysis techniques. The enlargement and shoaling of the canal is investigated to determine their causes, and to quantify the rates of erosion and deposition in a man-made structure of historicaly known dimensions in the bidirectional tidal flow regions of an estuarine environment. /ASCE/
