Extreme floods are able to execute river geomorphological variations with a wide and substantial geological changes. Former studies of extreme floods have reported a reach of geomorphic replies from negligible change to catastrophic channel change. This article provides an evaluation of the geomorphic effects of a scarce, great value event that occurred in the Ilam Dam
upstearim, on ۲۹ October ۲۰۱۵. Variations in geomorphic replies among reaches are examined in the context of changes in flood power, channel competence and lateral confinement index
by the use of field survey and Satellite Images (IRS). In this research which is focused on the plan of spatial units, channel width variations and calculation of peak discharges were used to estimate cross-sectional stream power
and unit stream power. The analysis was performed for the widening (width ratio) at reach scale. The total data set includes ۳۸ reaches. Because of the ۲۰۱۵ flood, the largest value of widening was ۲۹ m (Reach ۱۳) and it demonstrated a ۱۰۰% change in the channel width. Flood power peak was calculated ۱۰۶۳۱ W m−۲ along the rather confined reaches (Reach ۳۱) and was much lower along the unconfined reaches. The tendency of high stream power
values, and resultant high erosion rates, within the confined and partly confined reaches is a subordinate of the higher energy slope of the steeper.
