Abstract. Several studies have implied towards the importance of bed roughness on alluvial cover, besides, several mathematical models have also been introduced to mimic the effect bed roughness may project on alluvial cover. Here, we provide a state of the art review of research exploring the relationship between alluvial cover, sediment supply and bed topography, thereby, describing various mathematical models used to analyse deposition of alluvium. In the interest of analysing the efficiency of various available mathematical models, we performed laboratory-scale experiments and compared the results with various models. Our experiments show that alluvial cover is not merely governed by increasing sediment supply, and, bed topography is an important controlling factor of alluvial cover. Testing experimental results with various theoretical models suggest a fit of certain models for a particular bed topography and inefficiency in predicting higher roughness topography. Three models efficiently predict the experimental observations, albeit their limitations which we discuss here in detail.

Short summary
This study provides a state of the art discussion of mathematical models used for mimicking the sediment processes in bedrock river channels. We tested the model capabilities by reproducing and comparing the results with laboratory-scale experiments. This study provides an insight into the strengths and shortcomings of various available models.
