Flashcards in Incised Meanders (Rejuvenation) Deck (5)
Why do incised meanders occur
As a result of the rate at which vertical erosion is occurring.
When is an ingrown meander formed
When incision is slow and lateral erosion is occurring
What does an incised meander look like
The valley becomes asymmetrical, with steep cliffs on the outer bends and more gentle slip-off slopes on the inner bends
What are entrenched meanders
With rapid incision, when downcutting or vertical erosion dominates, the valley is lore symmetrical, with steep sides and a gorge like appearance.
