A stochastic model is proposed to describe flood-induced changes in cross sections of ephemeral streams with coarse bed-material. The model is based on the assumption that the real process can be described as a marked point process. The cumulative distribution functions of both the total change in a fixed interval of time and the maximum scour in the same period were examined. The model was run, using Monte Carlo techniques, with field data obtained from a small stream in southern Italy.

Abstract

A stochastic model is proposed to describe flood-induced changes in cross sections of ephemeral streams with coarse bed-material. The model is based on the assumption that the real process can be described as a marked point process. The cumulative distribution functions of both the total change in a fixed interval of time and the maximum scour in the same period were examined. The model was run, using Monte Carlo techniques, with field data obtained from a small stream in southern Italy.
