If I have a uniform river in equilibrium and I widen the width by a factor of 2 for about 500 ft of the length, what will be the sediment transport change(aggradation, degradation, or equilibrium) of the river? I was thinking that the upstream would stay in equilibrium, and the downstream would have aggradation while the widened area would have degradation. I'm new to sedimentation engineering and I'm having problems relating book knowledge to practical experience. Thanks.
