To do geomorphic change detection, one needs to have repeat topographic survey. There are many ways to acquire topographic data and this paper by Bangen et al. (2014) reviews some of the most common methods to acquire topography for wadeable streams.
High resolution topography (HRT) has become increasingly common from a variety of platforms. This review by Passalacqua et al. (2015) discusses some of the most common challenges associated with producing and analyzing HRT to do meaningful change detection (among other analyses).
