Short summary
Channel bends and bars make up an important physical and ecological unit within rivers. Many riparian vegetation species need river bars for their life cycle, colonizing bars after flooding events. Once vegetation is established on bars, they can alter the flow and patterns of erosion and deposition. We used a hydraulic model to quantify the impact such riparian vegetation of various sizes and densities has on flow dynamics and inferred the expected changes in river erosion and deposition.
