原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)River processes in a drainage basin are strongly governed by the spatio-temporal variability in stream power. Recently, various approaches have been developed to derive the spatial variability of stream power in a river basin; however, the temporal variability in stream power due to hydrological changes remains poorly understood. An assessment of the temporal variability of stream power is critical for river studies in monsoonal regimes because significant geomorphic work is performed during this period, particularly in the Himalayan rivers. This paper presents a novel methodology to derive the stream power distribution at a basin-scale using a physically-based-hydrological model, the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). Hydrological changes in the upper Kosi (also called...
