meander chute cut-off

Spanish - Spain

i was reading a paper about research on hydrology and, talking about wood presence in river channels, they said: 'Wood can also have a significant impact on meander chute cut-off'

I am not sure what it means in Spanish.

Thank you for your help

    "Meandering" refers to the change of a river bed caused by greater erosion of the outer bank of a bend; this forms an enlarging loop which is eventually cut off when two sections of the bed approach each other and are connected by a "chute" (a break-through channel).
