TERMINOLOGY CLARIFICATIONS


Rosgen Channel Classification System:

The Rosgen classification system was developed by Dave Rosgen and assigns a channel type based on channel slope, width to depth ratio, bed material, entrenchment ratio and sinuosity. The classification is particularly popular in the U.S. where it was developed but has been applied internationally as well.
