Reconfigured Channel Monitoring and Assessment Program (RCMAP)

The U.S. Geological Survey is engaged in a program to monitor and assess the long-term geomorphic behavior of selected river and stream reaches that previously have undergone some physical modification. These modifications include natural channel adjustments to floods as well as intentional channel reconfigurations to alter the function or appearance of a river reach. Geomorphic surveys, photographic records, and sediment characteristics of selected river reaches are available from the RCMAP data base maintained and periodically updated by the USGS Water Resources Discipline.
