Climate and geology are the primary forces shaping the Earth’s landscape. Climate and
geologic processes combine to control water discharge, sediment supply, and channel slope,
which dictate a river channel’s pattern. Glacial processes typically produce high discharges,
large volumes of sediment, and steep channel slopes. Rivers respond to these processes by
developing a braided river pattern. Braided rivers contain multiple separated by bars or islands.
Braided channels are variable, dynamic systems with high rates of fluvial activity and channel
adjustment from erosional and depositional processes.

Paradise Creek is located in south-central Alaska and drains into the Resurrection River and
eventually into Resurrection Bay near Seward, Alaska. Paradise Creek is a good example of a
braided river system found in high latitude, glacially dominated environments.
