Patterns in foreland fluvial processes
Summary: Foreland and mountain river channels differ markedly in terms of gradient, bedload composition and channel type as a result of differing geology and development processes in these two environments. To understand these differences, a comparison was made between the foreland rivers of the Northern Caucasus and the Western Ural Mountains. The foreland rivers selected represent the type of fluvial process characteristic for areas just below mountains, where the bedload is deposited and channels start branching out. The Western Ural rivers are peculiar in having developed flatland type channels while still within the mountains and meandering channels upon entering mid-mountain plains. This diversity of fluvial processes can be attributed to differences in geotectonic movements between the mountains and the foreland. Indeed, in the Caucasus, these have different directions and high amplitude, while in the Ural Mts. they are unidirectional and with small amplitude.
