The authors of this study looked at how depth velocity and flow resistance vary with discharge in bedrock versus alluvial channels. Flow resistance differs considerably for a given discharge. The flow resistance of the bedrock channel was much higher at higher flows because of the roughness of irregular rock walls. This is good to know for fitting and extrapolating rating curves.
