Topic Stream Channel: Cross-Sections - Garcia Estuary Mouth XS-2, 1991-1998
Caption:  This chart shows surveys of the Garcia River Estuary cross-section Mouth XS-2. Surveys were conducted in 1991, 1995, and 1998. Jackson (1998) notes: the total cross-section area has declined each year, indicating that deposition was the dominant process at the cross-section." The thalweg of the main channel is near the right bank and its elevation declined from 1991 to 1995 and then rose from 1995 to 1998. Between 1991 and 1995 the central bar grew significantly; however, between 1995 and 1998, the left 50 feet of the central bar was eroded. In 1991 there were two bars and three channels between the left bank and the central bar. By 1998, deposition filled the middle channel creating a single bar. See InfoLinks for more information.
