Channel cross-sections for the CEH River Lambourn Observatory at Boxford

This dataset contains channel cross-sections for the River Lambourn and Westbrook Channel at the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) River Lambourn Observatory at Boxford, Berkshire. The CEH River Lambourn Observatory located in the county of Berkshire, UK (51.445o N 1.384o W) comprises a 600 m reach of the River Lambourn with 10 hectares of associated riparian wetland. The Westbrook Channel divides the wetland into northern and southern meadows. Channel cross-section surveys were conducted using Trimble R8TM dGPS for the Westbrook Channel in May 2013 and the River Lambourn in November 2013.

Channel cross-section surveys were conducted using Trimble R8TM dGPS for the Westbrook in May 2013 and the River Lambourn in November 2013. Cross-sections were surveyed at 44 locations along the Westbrook and 42 along the River Lambourn. Locations were restricted in access and line of sight by dense vegetation. For the purposes of this study, bankfull stage was observed as an abrupt change in slope, dominant bench level and, if applicable, the lower limit of riparian vegetation.
