Flooding causes river channel change that threatens people and property. Due to climate change and urbanization, flooding events are projected to happen more frequently in the future, which will make the associated hazards worse. This project estimated the historical river channel change in the Lamprey River in southern New Hampshire. River channel change was estimated by delineating riverbank location on historical aerial photographs. The river channel change was compared to river width, curvature, and the number of 1.5-year flood events to explore the drivers of river channel change in the Lamprey River.
