About this book

This handbook is based upon work with the US Army to develop Stream Reconnaissance Record Sheets for use in the field. The sheets are used to obtain all the relevant information required for the bank stability model: action of channel flow on the bed and bank, how the resulting erosion impacts the bank stability, where retreat will be located in future and how local erosion processes are related to reach dynamics or to instability in the fluvial system.


Contents

STREAM RECONNAISSANCE RECORD SHEETS; GUIDELINES FOR STREAM RECONNAISSANCE; Background; Guidelines for Completing the Sheets; FIELD EQUIPMENT BACKPACK FOR STREAM RECONNAISSANCE; Components of the Fieldpack and Their Uses; Index.
