The goals of the project were to develop regional relations for bankfull channel characteristics of the Mississippi Embayment of Kentucky and to assess five specific biological assessment sites. To accomplish these goals, an extensive examination of collection of stream geomorphological characteristics in the specific region was conducted. Regional geomorphic relations for bankfull channel depth, width, and area were developed based on the dataset for gravel, sand, and silt bed streams. Recommendations for the applications of the regional bankfull relations for stream morphological assessment and stream restoration are also provided.
