Roots crossing river/water-course boundaries

Good morning all

Just been considering the likely rooting radial extent of some mature trees
on the other side of (but against) a water course boundary (stream) about
1-2m wide. I do not recall reading any guidance on this and it seems most
of the science relates to soil erosion and riparian habitats.

Anyone know of some quality guidance on the likely rooting extent
across/under watercourses.
