Abstract


Slope, sinuosity and channel pattems in the Ebro River. The values of slope and sinuosity of the bed of the middle Ebro river have been calculated. along 338 km. of free meanders between Logroño and Alforque. Both parameters have been calculated in the same way for the 22 sections in which the river has been divided longitudinally, looking jora causes effect relationship between slope and sinuosity which is not clear in all cases. After deftning the channel pattems of middle Ebro river, the work is completed comparing the achieved results with the registered values for the rivers Po and Garonne.
