Sens technique
Full filling up of the riverbed. The bankfull discharge is responsible for the formation and dynamics of flow facies and morphological alterations of the watercourse. It is the liquid flow for which the transported sediment discharge is maximal. We thus speak of morphogenetic flow. For many streams the bankfull discharge is a 1 to 3 year flood.
