Figure 2. Aerial view of the channel country of Cooper Creek. Multiplpe channels are spread across this floodplain, which is in places ~60km wide. When flow ceases, water remains in the enlarged channel segments, and become billabongs, or waterholes, which are important sources of water during the dry season.
