Determination of the transport ("diffusion") coefficient, the main parameter of most forward models for generating fluvial stratigraphy, requires finding the average slope required to transport the total sediment load delivered to a given point for a given water discharge. Finding this value, in turn, requires averaging the substantial fine-scale local variability in transport capacity that one encounters in most natural rivers. The problem is especially acute for braided rivers, in which the local capacity varies strongly in time and space as channels migrate, flow shifts from one part of the channel network to another, and confluences, which account for...
