This class exercise is an opportunity for students to gain valuable field experiences and develop fieldwork skills. The goal is to have students compare their measurements of a bankfull channel and its bed sediments with theoretical values that might imply whether the channel is 'adjusted' or is out of equilibrium with its setting. This is accomplished by having the students calculate a bankfull Shields stress value and then compare that value with both: (1) a theoretical range of values that might comprise an 'adjusted' condition, and (2) experimental values for the minimal Shields stress required to entrain bed grains of different sizes. They are then to evaluate whether the channel is stable or not. Designed for a geomorphology course
