Contents

Part 1 Background to the temperate zone: characteristics of the temperate zone and fluvial palaeohydrology, L.Starkel; hydrology of rivers and river regimes, A.Sundborg and Margareta Jansoon; morphology and sediments - typological characteristics of fluvial forms and deposits, K.J.Gregory and J.K.Maizels. Part 2 Regional case studies of temperate river valleys: glacio-isostatically adjusted palaeohydrology, the rivers Ivalojoki and Oulankajoki, Northern Finland, L.Koutaniemi; regional case studies in Southern Finland with reference to Glacial Rebound and Baltic regression, H.Mansikkaniemi; palaeohydrologic change during deglaciation in upland Britain - a case study from North East Scotland, Judith Maizels and J.Aitken; hydrogeomorphological changes in the Severn Basin during the last 15,000 years - orders of change in a maritime catchment, A.G.Brown; the vistula river valley - a case study for central Europe, L.Starkel; Warta - a case study of a lowland river, S.Kozarski; environmental processes and fluvial responses in a small temperate zone catchment - a case study of the Sussex Ouse valley, South East England, P.J.Burrin and D.K.C.Jones; palaeohydrological development in the Southern Netherlands during the last 15,000 years, S.J.P.Bohncke and J.Vandenberghe; the late-glacial and holocene evolution of the middle and lower river Scheldt, Belgium, P.Kiden; the history of the Aare river and the Rorealpine lakes in Western Switzerland, Barbara Wholfarth-Meyer and Brigitta Ammann; the Morava river basin during the last 15,000 years, P.Havlicek; palaeogeography of the lower Danube valley and the Danube delta during the last 15,000 years, C.Ghenea and N.Mihailescu; the evolution of the river systems in the East Baltic, A.Miidel and A.Raukas; the fluvial history of West Siberia, V.I.Astakhov. Part 3 Perspectives: glacier fluctuations in Scandinavia during the last 9,000 years, W.Karln; paleogeography of limestone areas, V.Lozek; retrodiction of palaeodischarges of meandering and sinuous alluvial rivers and its palaeohydroclimatic implications, K.Botnicki; long distance correlation of fluvial events in the temperate zone, L.Starkel; a bright future for old flows, V.R.Baker; the need for a continuing agenda - unfinished business, K.J.Gregory and J.B.Thornes.
