Excess sediment continues to be a major polluter of surface water with streambank erosion being a primary, but often ignored, contributor. Streambank erosion is a complex process that involves three primary mechanisms (subaerial processes, fluvial erosion, and mass wasting) and is driven by several soil properties that are spatially variable. Jet erosion tests (JETs) allow for in-situ determination of these parameters. In this research, JETs were completed at numerous sites along two streams in each the Illinois River and Fort Cobb Reservoir watersheds in Oklahoma. The objectives were to use JET results from these streambank tests to investigate variability of erodibility parameters on the watershed scale and investigate longitudinal trends in streambank erodibility. The research also determined the impact of this variability on lateral retreat predicted by a process-based model. View this paper
