TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Web Document 67: Methodology for Predicting Channel Migration documents and presents the results of a study to develop a practical methodology to predict the rate and extent of channel migration in proximity to transportation facilities. The principal product of this research was NCHRP Report 533: Handbook for Predicting Stream Meander Migration, a stand-alone handbook for predicting stream meander migration using aerial photographs and maps. A companion product to NCHRP Web Document 67 is NCHRP CD 49: Archived River Meander Bend Database, a four-CD-ROM set that contains a database of 141 meander sites containing 1,503 meander bends on 89 rivers in the United States.
