the vertical blue solid line represents the suspension number corresponding to the maximum resistance coefficient/dune size, obtained in the present study. this shows that 82.8% of fine-grained rivers maintain a bankfull suspension number greater than 0.9, indicating that for the majority of fine-grained rivers worldwide, bed coarsening will enhance dune size and thus flow resistance, so as to amplify flood stage. the vertical red solid line represents the suspension number (3.0) corresponding to borderline of silt-sand-bedded rivers (32.5% of fine-grained rivers worldwide), such as the yellow river, where a bed coarsening process can act far more quickly over a short time scale, indicating a quick and strong flood amplification effect. arrows on the x-axis indicate pre- and post- damming conditions of the lower yellow river.
the heart is the organ that pumps the blood through the vessels. it pumps blood directly into arteries, more specifically the aorta or the pulmonary artery. blood vessels are critical because they control the amount of blood flow to specific parts of the body. blood vessels include arteries, capillaries, and veins. arteries carry blood away from the heart and can divide into large and small arteries. large arteries receive the highest pressure of blood flow and are more thick and elastic to accommodate the high pressures. smaller arteries, such as arterioles, have more smooth muscle which contracts or relaxes to regulate blood flow to specific portions of the body. arterioles face a smaller blood pressure, meaning they don’t need to be as elastic. arterioles account for most of the resistance in the pulmonary circulation because they are more rigid than larger arteries. furthermore, the capillaries branch off of arterioles and are a single cell layer. this thin layer allows for the exchange of nutrients, gases, and waste with tissues and organs. also, the veins transport blood back to the heart. they contain valves to prevent the backflow of blood.
we predicted that the resistance relation will change because of the installation of a dam. specifically, we predicted that the difference between the c value upstream and downstream of the dam will decrease and the value of c will decrease and this decrease will lead to deeper flow and greater stages. this is the most prominent effect of the dam. to test the hypothesis, we evaluated the response of the river flow depth, stage, and release probability (or rp, the probability of exceedance of the flow criterion) after the construction of a 404ft-wide, 10ft-high dam at the chewuch river on the main divide in british columbia (n = 41 t – 76 l). the debris around the base of the dam appears fine grained and there are no hydrological controls in this system that are responsible for the underlying mechanism. we used cf to quantify the loss of efficiency and bed composition downstream of the dam, and from eq. 1 we predicted the depth and stage of the flow downstream of the dam. to more specifically define the effect of a dam, we evaluated the flow depth, stage, and rp downstream of the dam for three subsequent flood events each one year after the dam was installed. we also evaluated the depth of the upstream flow head and the non-flood hydraulics of the dam.
we observed a sharp decrease in the c value downstream of the dam, and the average c value decreased by 50% (from 0.40 to 0.20) after the dam was installed. in contrast, the c upstream of the dam increased slightly and no change was evident in the rp downstream of the dam. thus the dam had pronounced downstream impact on the chewuch river flow depth and stage and led to an increase in rp (i.e., the probability of exceedance of the stage criterion) of 50-fold. interestingly, the installation of the dam caused the upstream flow depth to decrease by about 1/3 and lead to an increase in rp in the upper river as well. thus, the establishment of a dam on a fine-grained river (silt-bedded and sand-bedded rivers with median bed grain size
