About this book

Presents an overview of fluvial geomorphology (how water movement effects the surface features of the earth) that provides river engineers and managers with useful insights and understanding of natural channel forms and fluvial processes. The book sets out the methodological basis for the collection of Geomorphological data and information and shows how quantitative and qualitative geomorphic analyses may be applied to gain useful knowledge and insight regarding the past, present and future behaviour of the system.
