Tharp, Thomas M.
Journal of Geological Education, v31 n5 p375-78 Nov 1983
Describes an investigation which introduces the mathematical principles of stream hydraulics and fluvial sediment in a practical context. The investigation has four stages: defining hydrology of the stream; defining channel hydraulics in a study reach; measuring grain size; and calculating transportable grain size and comparing measure stream-bed grain sizes.
