Changes of the hydrodynamic conditions in the braided river

2014 GEOREVIEW: Scientific Annals of Stefan cel Mare University of Suceava. Geography Series  
The paper focuses on the understanding of the basic hydrodynamic conditions along the braided gravel-bed river. The measuring cross-section was located in the Ochotnica River, where its braided channel development was observed. Investigations take place from 2003 up to 2014. Measurements were performed for selected characteristic points. The study focused mostly on the measurements of water velocities under different flow conditions, and next on finding basic hydraulic parameters of flow: shear
