Detailed Description

Following the Condit Dam removal, a significant amount of bedload sediment was transported downstream. As the material moved along the river bottom, dunes began to form then collapse. This dune formation is seen through the waveform action as the stream's normal laminar flow is replaced by whitecap wave forms before returning, once again, to laminar flow.
