A Peculiar River

Published through the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Water technology and alertness Series.

The Deschutes is a "peculiar" dammed river in Oregon. Its dramatic juxtaposition of geology, topography, and weather provides a digital textbook of landforms and geomorphic approaches revealing Quaternary, Holocene, and intensely contemporary occasions of mammoth value. alongside the lively volcanism and tectonism, the current riverine panorama displays this episodic geomorphic heritage, as remnants of fluviatle beneficial properties, large bars and boulders, mantle the panorama. A odd River: Geology, Geomorphology, and Hydrology of the Deschutes River, Oregon tells a desirable tale a few "striking, occasionally intimidating, panorama that serves to question generalities and is a laboratory during which to review detailed landforms and the procedures that produce them."Content:
