About this book

Dams profoundly impact the geomorphology of rivers by altering the natural patterns of water, sediment, and energy flow in rivers. These changes have a largely negative impact on aquatic and riparian ecosystems upstream and downstream of the dam. Natural dams also impact river geomorphology, although with both positive and negative repercussions for aquatic and riparian organisms.

This volume contains fourteen papers presented at the 33rd Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium, held in 2002.
