Human interventions can result in changes in the equilibrium profile of rivers. It is difficult to identify the bed level changes that result from river interventions due to the various causes of bed level changes. Using wavelet filtering, we are able to isolate the effect of river interventions based on the length scale over which they occur. The method presented here can aid in verifying model results. In addition, it can be used to estimate bed level changes that occur over various spatial scales.
