Criticality in the planform behavior of the Ganges River meanders

The critical point of planform transition from straight to meandering in the wandering Ganges River is identifiable. Recent remote-sensing data indicate that four similar meanders cut off, or attempted to cut off, after ~31–35 yr, primarily due to channel aggradation. As main channels aggrade, sinuosity is maximized for broad channel widths and small radii of curvature and relaxes for bends of greater radii.
